Those wasteful spending watchdogs will surely be out in force to protest this one. Oh, wait, it's not in Victoria, and it's not about preserving heritage, so therefore it's money well spent:
$80M-plus new school for Cowichan...
A new Cowichan Secondary School is on the way, thanks to $79.9 million in provincial funding announced Wednesday.
The funding is part of B.C.’s seismic-mitigation program, aimed at schools that have a seismic risk.
The current school was built in 1950 and has had several additions, the last coming in 1998.
B.C.’s Education Minister Rob Fleming visited Cowichan Secondary School on Dec. 18 to announce that a new seismically safe $82.2 million facility to replace the 69-year old CSS will be open for classes by September, 2023.
