Why is hospital construction going to take so long?

It would seem as though the politicians have have struck once again.

This proposed building (hospital) — what is it to be constructed of? Plus, what would cause the construction to take six years and at or above the quoted cost, $400,000,000?

Is it to be a monument to perceived progress, a palace for North Cowichan’s mayor, an example of political interference, or all of the above?

Perhaps, just a hospital would do the trick.

I am at a loss to why it would take six years to build this monument. I would recommend signing on a new building contractor; snails would move faster than what has been proposed!

The Mayor of North Cowichan seems to have shrugged his shoulders, Que Sera Sera — in other words blame someone else for this debacle.
