How noticeable is the smell of the pulp mill? I've heard it can be bad.

Answer
The primary airflow is east to west or west to east. The wind needs to blow from the south to flow over Brocklehurst which does happen occasionally but is not the norm. Sahali, Downtown, South Kamloops and Juniper actually get more mill smell than Brocklehurst. I live in Bachelor Heights and we get the mill smell only when the wind is from the South too. But I do see the mill haze over Sahali etc from my view to the south.

How noticeable is aircraft noise from the airport in Brock?

It's not a busy enough airport for it to be a bother.
Much of the air traffic into Kamloops is regional prop-jet and private piston aircraft. Whenever possible take offs and landings are over the lake which has almost no impact on the city. Each summer with onset of fire season we see a bit of an airshow with fire control aircraft coming and going. We get the occasional jet but not too many as there are no longer regular scheduled 737's coming to Kamloops. So, our air traffic is pretty light over all.
