Ian Morrison is an area director with the Cowichan Valley Regional District…which took the issue to AVICC.
Shelley Balme recently got a gravel pit permit for her Cowichan Valley farm…and she is not happy about the idea of losing it.

But before anything happens, the Union of BC Municipalities needs to approve the AVICC resolution and the province has to agree.
