Residents across the Cowichan Valley have the opportunity to participate in a comprehensive Community Satisfaction Survey.
Over the next four weeks, Leger Marketing will conduct a statistically valid survey that will gather data from 600 residents to gauge quality of life, delivery of programs and services, as well as how best to inform and engage the public.
Beginning Wednesday, November 20, randomly selected residents and households will be called though both landlines and cell phones. Eligible participants will have the option to complete the approximately 15-minute survey over the phone, or online through a unique, secure link sent to their email. At the end of the survey, residents have the ability to opt-in to a short follow-up email
survey related to regional health services for use by Island Health and Our Cowichan Communities Health Network, as well as enter to win a gift card for CVRD recreation facilities.
Residents who are not selected to participate in the scientific study are encouraged to complete an online version of the survey at http://cvrd.legeropinion.com. The open version of the survey
will be accessible until December 31, and will be reported separately from the statistically valid survey.
The results of both surveys will be presented to the CVRD Board of Directors in early 2020 and available for review on the CVRD website.
Local actor, musician and independent producer, Mark Hellman is delighted to bring his rollicking one-man singalong musical, PETE SEEGER’S THE INCOMPLEAT FOLKSINGER.
Pete Seeger (1919-2014) was a key figure in the mid-20th century global folk music revival. He sang in defence of the poor, the oppressed, and the exploited, and always to enliven and encourage, to delight, and to tell tales. This unique full-length solo performance (adapted from Seeger’s 1972 autobiography of the same name) imagines a concert ‘somewhere on the road, 1970, weaving together verbatim theatre, live music and audience participation into a journey spanning 35 years (1935-70) and featuring all or part of 29 songs.
Seeger reflects on his involvement in the union movement, WWII, his public stand against McCarthyism(HUAC), his actions in support of the Civil Rights Movement, global travels (with many stops across Canada) and visits to conflict zones overseas, while honouring his greatest inspirations: Woody Guthrie, Lee Hays, Leadbelly, Martin Luther King, and his great love, Toshi Ohta.
Invited to sing along at every turn, the audience is completely engaged and embedded in the story, and by the finale of “If I Had a Hammer” audience and performer merge into a single voice, embodying the principle that Seeger lived through his life and art: “Participation. That’s what’s gonna save the human race.”
