Wise warns of water woes

Rocky Wise moved to Lake Cowichan from Duncan as a child in 1951.

"I’ve been at the Lake a few years," he said.

However, this is the first time he’s run for Lake Cowichan town council.

So, what pushed him into that step, after all this time?

"I’m not happy with the way things are in Lake Cowichan," he said.

A main reason he is running is that he wants to see the Town make more effort to take care of the municipal water and sewer system, Wise said.

"They should be looked after now instead of being put aside, which could be very costly," he said.

"I want to see something done about them. As far as I’m concerned, [the outfall from the sewer] should not be going into our river."

The Cowichan is a heritage river and should be better protected, he said.

"There’s no way our sewer should be going into our heritage river. I don’t agree with that. We have to have a different system, as far as I’m concerned."
