The good and the bad of this week in Cowichan for March 27

This we like

Braydon Luscombe may have stumbled a few times in a journey that fell short of the Sochi podium.

But there is no doubt that the young Duncanite made his family and his community proud with his performance during the Sochi Paralympics.

He’s back in the valley and already talking about his bid to return in 2018.Congratulations Braydon. You are an inspiration to us all.


This we don’t

The off-again, on-again, off-again saga of Literacy Now Cowichan funding is just  another example of the dilemma facing so many Cowichan social service agencies and non-profit societies.

They go from year-to-year never knowing if the services they provide are valued enough by those holding the purse strings to keep those purse strings open. More certainty to the funding cycle is what is needed.
