The good and the bad of this week in Cowichan for December 19

This we like

There are probably a few Grinches out there who are sick to death of reading and hearing about all the Christmas good deeds out there.

We certainly are not among them.

Whether it is Christmas baking on a massive scale as practised by Stacy Middlemiss and her elves, or the personal comfort being provided the homeless through Operation: Underpants, creative locals are making a difference.


This we don’t

The folks given the task of keeping our wintry roads safe say nothing has changed in the makeup of our road grit.

Our eyes and windshields tell a different story.

We need our roads properly sanded for maximum safety.

But there has to be some attention paid to the potential damage sanding can cause to the very vehicles it is designed to protect.
