On Friday, Nov. 2 a  large group of local mayors and municipal staff, as well as CVRD directors and senior staff, converged on Lake Cowichan for a tour of the area and lunch at the Seniors’ Centre.

Area Director Ian Morrison said that the idea of the tour is for the group to get out and experience the other representatives’ areas and get some first hand knowledge of the different regions with-in the CVRD.

“We attend many meetings in other politicians areas, but this is the perfect opportunity to get out and see in real life what these people are talking about,” he says. “Now when I talk about The Kaatza Station Museum, everyone will know exactly what I am talking about.” he adds.

Mayor Ross Forrest gave a brief update on the new library and Town Square to the people in attendance and invited anyone with questions to give him a call. The group then thanked the kitchen staff for a delicious lunch, headed back to the bus and were off to see more of the Cowichan Valley.
