Jensen gets CRD nod

Nils Jensen was elected chair of the Capital Region District board Wednesday.

Jensen, mayor of Oak Bay since 2011, has sat on municipal council for 15 years and said he believes in the CRD.

He called CRD staff dedicated, skilled, energetic and innovative and believes the regional district is the envy of water providers across Canada.

Southern Gulf Islands director David Howe was elected vice-chair.

Jensen defeated Esquimalt Mayor Barb Desjardins, who has criticized the CRD over the regional sewage issue.
