POLL: Do you like having the Snowbirds in the Comox Valley for their annual spring training?

  • Mar. 14, 2018 10:30 a.m.

The Snowbirds are coming! Yay!

The Snowbirds are coming! Grr!

Every spring, the Canadian Forces Snowbirds and F-18 demo teams come to Comox for their annual spring training sessions, in preparation for the air show season. And, every spring, the debate rages between those who enjoy the spectacle, and those who oppose the training sessions, for health and environmental reasons.

Have a say in our web pool. Do you like (Yay!) this annual event, or are you opposed (Grr!) to it?
