Comox Valley, what are you curious about?

The Curious Comox Valley set to launch next week

When it comes to things in the Comox Valley, what makes you go hmm?

Is there a pressing issue you always wanted to know about, or are you wondering what makes the Comox Valley home (or a great place to visit)?

Do you have a question about culture, arts, food, local landmarks, or maybe why your road doesn’t have sidewalks?

Every day, the editorial staff at the Comox Valley Record covers a variety of topics with stories that matter to the community. You can read those stories every Tuesday and Thursday in print, or anytime online at

But we were wondering, what if you – the reader – had the chance to assign the stories; what would they be?

Here’s your chance to let us know what you’re curious about. As journalists, it’s our job to find answers to the things that matter to you. We’ve got the tools and resources to find the answers to your questions.

No question is too big or small. Wondering why the Snowbirds always train in the Valley in the spring? How did Cumberland become the ‘Luckiest Town in Canada?’ Why do the oysters from Baynes Sound taste so good? Where’s the best place to watch the sunset? Let us know what’s on your mind.

Here’s how it works:

Every week on our website, and through Facebook and Twitter, you’ll find a link to a survey where you can enter your question.

From the questions submitted, we’ll pick three, and every week, you vote for which question you want to be answered. One click is all it takes to satisfy your curiosity.

Then, we’ll find the answer.

We’ll publish the most popular question online and in the paper, and to find the answer, pop on by the site.

Now, what are you curious about?

Get local stories you won't find anywhere else right to your inbox.
