"The message came through loud and clear that people care about conserving our beautiful valley, and in particular about solving our water challenges," said Gail Calderwood, One Cowichan Chemainus team member. The survey, which was not scientific and makes no claims about statistical validity, was answered by 697 people, mostly online.

Highlights included the desire to secure the local water supply and take over control of local watersheds; stop urban sprawl; take action on climate change; better consultation between government and citizens; tax balance between residential and industry and spending inefficiencies; protecting farmland and promoting local food consumption; and affordable housing.Water, conservation and accountability are key issues for Cowichan Valley residents heading into November's municipal elections a survey by citizen's group One Cowichan has found.
