Seeing both sides of: Cairnsmore Place improvements
The case for
Too many of our seniors are forgotten and neglected in their twilight years.
Mouldy floors, asbestos and dingy, tired rooms?

And when dedicated organzations like the Cowichan Hospital Foundation and the Duncan auxiliary are stepping up to put their efforts behind this Island Health initiative, you know it’s worthwhile.
This is money well-spent.
The case against
There is no doubt our seniors deserved better rooms than what they were getting at Cairnsmore.
But there is plenty of doubt about whether the money spent in improving their situation was great bang for our buck. $18,000 a room?
At that price, they might have been better off keeping Cowichan Lodge open and rebuilding Cairnsmore from scratch.
