It’s to be more of the same at Cowichan Lake South/Skutz Falls.

With no one running against him, Cowichan Lake South/Skutz Falls area director Ian Morrison is set for another three years representing his area at the Cowichan Valley Regional District board table.

“I’m thrilled at the opportunity to serve again,” he said.

“It’s nice to know that I have created an environment that someone doesn’t feel like they have to run. I’ve tried my best to sere as best what the community wanted me to do.”

Priorities this coming term will be looking into upgrading his area to modern sewer systems, re-paving the roads, and protecting the watershed, in addition to other green goals.

Another ongoing mission will be protecting local democracy.

“Over the last three years, I’ve found that my values are apparently different than some of the others at the board table,” he said.

“I think that openness, honesty, and democratic principals are the most important at this level, because we have the most interaction with the public,” he said.

“I don’t think this term’s board has been a good example of this democracy.”
