We have been talking about raising the weir at Cowichan Lake for too long. It's time to get it done.
We are facing yet another summer of likely drought which will damage fish populations and place jobs at the mill in Crofton at risk.
There is wide consensus about raising the weir so I urge you to direct your staff to work more urgently with Cowichan Tribes and other levels of government to get it done.
