Cowichan deserves vote

There will be no byelection for the people of the Cowichan school district, Education Minister George Abbott has said.

Obviously, the government is afraid that the people of the Cowichan district will re-elect the same group that they elected last time to restore services that were previously cut from their ailing schools.

That same group of people that consulted with the community before they drafted their restoration budget. Like someone once said “Democracy is great until it falls into the hands of the people.” Eh? The people of the Cowichan School District should be entitled to a byelection.
