This we like

 

An Urban legend will come true for SunFest fans next year.

Having Alan Jackson, Tim McGraw and Keith Urban next as headliners means this is one of the elite country music festivals anywhere in North America, never mind just Canada.

The next step has to be attracting a major female performer. Faith Hill, Carrie Underwood, Taylor Swift or Martina McBride would be nice.

 

This we don’t

 

That ugly blue building on the entrance into Chemainus on Chemainus Road is still there.

With all the plans in the works for a major revitalizing of the Chemainus core  for the first time since the early 1980s, this building sticks out like a sore thumb.

Demolish it now! North Cowichan certainly can’t let any of its revitalization plans proceed without dealing with this horrible eyesore first.
