Why is hospital construction going to take so long?

It would seem as though the politicians have have struck once again.

Why is hospital construction going to take so long?

It would seem as though the politicians have have struck once again.

This proposed building (hospital) — what is it to be constructed of? Plus, what would cause the construction to take six years and at or above the quoted cost, $400,000,000?

Is it to be a monument to perceived progress, a palace for North Cowichan’s mayor, an example of political interference, or all of the above?

Perhaps, just a hospital would do the trick.

I am at a loss to why it would take six years to build this monument. I would recommend signing on a new building contractor; snails would move faster than what has been proposed!

The Mayor of North Cowichan seems to have shrugged his shoulders, Que Sera Sera — in other words blame someone else for this debacle.
