Kamloops seeks foreign workers

Help wanted: Are you a civil engineer looking for work? A geologist, or laboratory analyst? A truck driver or tandoori chef? About 15 companies in Kamloops are looking for help.... but they can't seem to find it. At least not here. So Venture Kamloops, the city's economic development office, sent a recruiter to a couple of job fairs. Mike O'Reilly is just back from Paris and Brussels. He's here in the studio this morning.
