Lake Cowichan supporting Duncan totem pole ambitions

The Town of Lake Cowichan is sending a letter of support to the City of Duncan

The Town of Lake Cowichan is sending a letter of support to the City of Duncan for their application for money from the Canada 150 Fund for a new totem pole.

It’s all a part of Heritage Canada’s plans to celebrate in 2017, a letter from Duncan Mayor Phil Kent explained.

“The proposed project seeks to add a new totem to the city’s renowned collection in celebration and recognition of Canada’s 150th anniversary — a lasting reminder not only of the milestone event but themed to highlight and tell the story of Cowichan’s important place within Canada during the nation’s first 150 years,” Kent said.
