CVRD Board Advocates for Regional Issues at Union of BC Municipalities Conference

Duncan, BC – For five days this week, members of the Cowichan Valley Regional District (CVRD) Board will be at the Union of BC Municipalities (UBCM) Conference in Victoria meeting with municipal and provincial leaders as well as working to address some key regional issues.

“The UBCM conference is a great opportunity for elected officials and staff to learn best practices, attend educational sessions on issues facing local governments as well as meet with provincial ministers to address a range of regional issues,” explains Chair Jon Lefebure.

CVRD Directors and staff will attend meetings with three cabinet ministers to discuss the following topics:
• Minister of Health – the need for a new Cowichan District Hospital
• Minister of Transportation and Infrastructure – rural road cycling and pedestrian pathways
• Minister of Environment – impacts of South Island Aggregates contaminated soil landfill permit

Four resolutions put forward by the CVRD Board will be debated and voted on by UBCM delegates which include:
• The need for establishing new local public notice policies
• A request for a provincial ban on single use shopping bags
• Support for pedestrian and cycling pathways on rural roads
• Request for a review of the province’s use of the professional reliance model
