just writing to Mike's question -- looks to me like they say Cortes and usually nothing when it's on Quadra.
Cortes is 'not that bad'.
My first thought: "Is Cortes that bad?"

If it comes under the Heading of "Cortes Island RCMP News Release" then are we to assume that all of the events that are not specified to have occurred on Quadra, happened on Cortes instead?
I would find it helpful if you would please identify which island you are writing up a release for. Thanks.
