The good and the bad of this week in Cowichan for August 29
This we like
It’s not boom times in the Cowichan Valley, but it’s not bad times either.
Not if you look at the number of interesting projects being moved forward in this community.
The economic injection provided by Spooksville filming here and the exciting plans for the University Village are just two signs of progress covered in our annual Vision 2013: Community Update, a series of articles set to run this weekend in the news section of cowichannewsleader.com.
This we don’t
Three tragedies in less than a week would hit any community hard.
And the fact all three — the traffic accident that killed Selina Natasha Joe south of Duncan, last week’s Cowichan River drowning, and Monday’s death of a faller near Lake Cowichan — happened outdoors at the tale end of what has been a glorious summer, makes it even harder. Don’t add to the toll this weekend. Stay safe.
