The good and the bad of this week in Cowichan for March 13
This we like
The fact Richard Jerman could be suddenly uprooted from his family and the country he’s called home for 37 years is scary business.
The fact that he hasn’t been — and seems poised to officially become a permanent resident — is warm comfort that Canada is, indeed, the type of country we think it is.
Thanks to all for making this happen and keeping our faith in Canada intact.
This we don’t
The fact that B.C. teachers are, once again, in a strike position is troubling.
Most will agree our school system is in need of an investment of resources and a shift from entrenched ways of thinking. Most would also agree the solution is not to simply throw money at the problem.
B.C. needs both sides to step away from entrenched battle lines and work together to find a better way.
