Bay, band settle sweater dispute


The Cowichan Tribes made peace with the Bay department-store chain yesterday, with the announcement of an agreement that will see authentic Cowichan hand-knit sweaters for sale in the Bay's flagship store in Vancouver and at the aboriginal pavilion during the 2010 Games. Chief Lydia Hwitsum called the deal "a real positive opportunity" to get exposure for the Cowichan sweater and take advantage of Olympic marketing.
