Flag poles around Cowichan underused
Dear mayors and councillors:
For years I’ve noticed various flag poles around Duncan and North Cowichan that have no flags on them.
I believe these bare, unused poles could proudly fly flags of Canada, B.C., North Cowichan, Duncan, or various other charitable or patriotic groups such as the Legion, Scouts, Canadian Cancer Society, Heart and Stroke Society etc.
I urge our councils to consider drafting a policy or bylaw encouraging local businesses and landowners to hoist flags on their poles, or have our municipalities raise those flags in community character and national spirit.
Our policies could also encourage other cities and towns to do the same.
