The good and the bad of this week in Cowichan Aug. 20
This we like
The clean-up effort of the Cowichan River by everyone who participated is commendable.
We all need to take action in situations like this, rather than sitting back and waiting for someone else to do it.
It’s alarming how much junk is in the river. Let’s stop polluting this valuable resource, first of all, and then the effort to clean it up won’t have to be so intense every year.
This we don’t
The long delays in putting cases through our court system are getting ridiculous.
The Const. David Pompeo shooting incident happened nearly five years ago and is still going through the process.
Delays are becoming far too commonplace, even with the simplest cases.
It’s time to get a move-on, clear the backlog and take swifter action for resolutions that people deserve.
