Perhaps it’s time to replace the cross

North Cowichan – I wonder if other community members agree that with the loss of our Mt. Tzouhalem landmark (the cross), comes a wonderful opportunity to re-think what Cowichan considers a “major landmark”.

How about we replace it with a symbol that is more representative of our community? Some suggestions include a statue portraying the battle between the Thunderbird and Killer Whale, or a statue representing peace, or anything else that isn’t acutely religious or faith based.

Yes, the cross has historical significance, but why not represent that in a plaque on the top of the mountain instead?
