Cowichan Conversations: Opinion-Dara Quast Has Established Herself as the Cobble Hill Candidate Worthy of Your Support-November 15th

Richard Hughes-Political Blogger It was a small crowd that arrived to hear the two candidates seeking to represent Cobble Hill at the CVRD Board Table. It was in many ways, deja vu all over again.

Cowichan Conversations: Now the CVRD Wants to Set Up Their Own Legal Department!

Richard Hughes-Political Blogger The legal profession must have red circled the Cowichan Valley Regional District by now as a big red plum to be picked at will.
