Each election we ask our list of One Cowichan followers what matters to them this election and what questions they'd like us to ask the candidates. This year we received numerous thoughtful responses, many with similar themes and concerns. Out of those responses, we put together nine questions and sent them to all the candidates running for election in the Cowichan Valley, with a word limit of 100 words for each question.
Here are the answers from the candidates for Ladysmith Council who replied.
