Statement on Watershed Protection and Cowichan Watershed Board

BC Legislature, Sonia Furstenau MLA, 02 Nov 2017

Today, I spoke in the house to recognize the Cowichan Watershed Board.

Cowichan has been identified by the POLIS Project on Ecological Governance as a candidate for a watershed governance pilot project – in large part due to the work of the Cowichan Watershed Board and many others who are committed to a healthy future for our watersheds and our community.
