Furstenau said the Cowichan Valley is large geographic region, and its population is growing.

“The South Cowichan detachment spends much of its time responding to problems on the Malahat,” she said.

“Removing RCMP presence from the south end would put a highway potentially full of traffic between citizens facing emergencies and their first responders. This presents an unacceptable risk to the community. I am urging the Solicitor General to go ahead with the original plan to rebuild the South Cowichan detachment on the land the CVRD has already provided for it.”
