Re: “Things are not always as they seem...

Just curious, by disliking my crypto-Liberal comment, are you subversively disliking G D Maxwell's attempt at some R L Stein fan fiction? One can never tell with you Cryptos.

Re: “Whistler Blackcomb, hiking groups remain at impasse over Garibaldi access

It's sad that THIS article has generated more commentary than most of the other issues which are more important to the overall health and well-being of the sea to sky area. Give your heads a shake, you crypto-Liberals

Re: “Whistler Blackcomb, hiking groups remain at impasse over Garibaldi access

So it continues. WB struggle to set up a scenario for more profit. Until there is a public outcry to save this Park and the healthy generation provided, WB will keep filling their shareholders pockets and limiting those who deserve free recreation.

Re: “Mountain Mentors set to launch

You know, there used to be a great place for women to connect, it was called the kitchen. Trudeau and his feminist minions would disagree with that, but it is only to the detriment of our society as a whole. For instance, my young wife can't cook, everything tastes so bland and if there is a spice or two thrown into the mix, the proportions usually do not adhere to the Greek standard. I liked Joan of Arc just as much as the next bloke, but she was NO feminist, and riding bikes around a resort town when you're a young woman of an adult age doesn't make you a better woman at the end of the day, but it might turn you into a crypto-Liberal if you aren't careful about where you get your life lessons from. I suggest you young women all go find a mentor who knows how to cook and make some Canadian babies as soon as possible, and maybe we will actually cure the obesity epidemic, which is ACTUALLY caused by people not eating home cooked meals anymore.

Re: “Driving discussions about safety

I suggest that all the fake environmentalists who live in the Lower Mainland go ride their bikes in Stanley Park rather than driving up to Whistler every weekend in the summer creating even MORE pollution! The crypto-Liberals would suggest that the carbon tax would adjust for that, but really all that tax does is create a caste society, where the elite can afford to drive to Whistler and pollute, and the poorer lower class can't even afford to drive from Pemberton to function junction to work anymore, so they sit at home and write letters to the editor as if they were a modern day Socrates.

Re: “Whistler Blackcomb, hiking groups remain at impasse over Garibaldi access

In an article in the Question, a WB rep stated the backcountry is a viable and available option for those with proper backcountry training, accessible by Singing Pass. - So they promote it but they don't allow access?

Re: “Whistler Blackcomb, hiking groups remain at impasse over Garibaldi access

I'll help Mr. Forseth of Whistler Blackcomb figure it out.

The Fitzsimmons Creek road is clearly marked as "public access road" and "park access right-of-way" in Schedule A of the 1982 Master Development Agreement between Whistler Mountain and the provincial government. It also shows the parking lot at the park boundary and the Singing Pass trail head at the parking lot.

Article 4.03 of the 1982 MDA states, "Whistler [Mountain] shall provide or cause to be provided Access Routes (a) by way of dedicated or gazetted road or by way of right-of-way to each Parking Facility."

Mountain Resorts Branch of the provincial government approves Mountain Phase development including the Renaissance project. It has as an article on page 28 of their All Seasons Resort policy that, "the statutory right of way document to be used for Recreation Improvement is the form attached as a schedule to the MDA." Schedule A of the 1982 MDA is such a form and it defines the statutory right-of-way up Fitzsimmons Creek road.

Put 2+2 together and you get Whistler Blackcomb has an obligation, as yet incomplete, to gazette the road or in other words make it a "statutory right-of-way". Making it statutory enshrines the public right to transit the road at any time of the year.

Mountain Resorts Branch and Whistler Blackcomb are operating as a tag team to keep the public from accessing the park. According to article 7.02 (n) of the 1982 MDA, "any person is permitted to pass and repass by foot during the months of May to November." But, there is no such article permitting any person to pass December to April. So unless the road is gazetted, backcountry skiers have no right to transit the controlled recreation area to reach the park.

Article 5.04 of the MDA states, "Whistler [Mountain] shall not without the consent of the Province... proceed with the construction of Recreation Improvement in a succeeding Mountain Phase until all of the Recreation Improvements in preceding Mountain Phases are in a state of Substantial Completion."

There you have folks. You are not "permitted" to access the park in winter and spring. Thank you Mr. Forseth. But, since Mr. Forseth is having trouble figuring it out, we don't think Whistler Blackcomb should be permitted to proceed with West Bowl, Cheakamus South, Mountain Phases 13, 14, 15 or the Renaissance project. Not without first gazetting the public road and park access right-of-way.

Pave the road to the park boundary and provide public parking.

Most people won't understand what the CO meant they will take his word as the voice of authority. .. unless he should use his own judgment on the job and not kill two bear cubs in Port Hardy then he will be repremanded and fired and it will become some blown out of proportion and suddenly political issue.

Re: “Whistler organizations preparing for fentanyl's arrival

How sad to read the report from the BC Coroners Service about the increase in illicit drug deaths.

My son Martin died on the 2nd September 2016 in Whistler, aged 19, and therefore is one of the statistics.
Martin's death has had far reaching impacts, and his loss has left a gaping hole in our family.

It is alarming that the number of deaths is increasing from illicit drugs and that the young, and not so young, are being enticed to add these substances to their lives for a variety of reasons.

That more families are having to go through the trauma of the death of a loved one from illicit drugs.

It seems that the education and information is just not getting through to those that are vulnerable, or at risk, of taking these substances.
The dealers and those wishing to make money continue to profit.

I liken the dealers and pushers to noxious weeds that infiltrate a garden: at first they mimic the plants we want to grow strong, then gradually take hold and get stronger, and before long they are so entrenched in the garden they are difficult to remove.

That garden could be likened the night-club or bar, where everyone wants to go and have fun, and feel part of the crowd.

So the friend or acquaintance who you first meet when you arrive in Whistler, and other places, may purport to be your friend and show you how to have a good time, but really have another agenda.

My wish and hope is that all the education, and health services, does well in the efforts to combat the scourge of illicit drugs and prevent more deaths.

As a mother and a family, the loss of a loved one this way leaves far more questions than are answered.

Re: “Resort communities state their case for RMI

The globalist agenda being perpetuated by the provincial and federal Liberals, as well as their minions who sit upon councils all throughout BC is eroding our once stable Canadian society and economy for the benefit of the few; which are business owners who profit off of tourists and home owners who profit off of air bnbs and housing shortages due to increased immigration. The economic plight of MANY current citizens who fall within a certain tax bracket (below the phantom middle class) is being hidden and not reported on adequately. The root causal factor of our problems today in Canada are as follows: globalism, runaway immigration, foreign investment into our housing market and economy as a whole with buisness ventures, excess tourism, the selfie generation and popularism in politics like the mass media campaigns by Liberals like Trudeau, crypto-liberal journalism and council members, inserting into the minds of the population that it is racist to be against immigration or even question its benefit. I call upon all Canadians to contact your local and federal Liberal offices and inform them that they will not get your vote ever again until they stop runaway immigration and start investing in LOCAL housing and businesses before they destroy this country. I don't care what party you vote for and I represent no specific party or ideology, I simply want this country to be a safe place for my children and yours to grow up in which has shared values and interests and is equal for ALL; regardless if you own a damn home or tourist based buisness or not!

Re: “Museums can lead in civilizing society

Once you get through the runaway verbiage in this article, you should know once simple truth: you don't need to civilize Canadians who were born here because we historically are a polite and civil nation, but the more immigrants you bring into our country, especially from regions like the Middle East, the less civil our society will be. I have found shared values and a common heritage to be the most civilizing of all. This can be done without the crypto-Liberal verbiage found in the above article. Thanks.

Re: “Upgrades in store for Whistler Transit facility

Soon, if the Liberals get their way, if you are a current Canadian citizen and were born here but you don't own a home or business you will be living in a bus shelter due to their immigration policies. All immigrants, please voluntarily leave now. Our government and business sectors are attempting to import you for low wage slavery purposes, to the detriment of hard working lower class Canadians already here. Do not come here. We wish you no harm and do not personally blame you, but hold the Liberal provincial and federal governments responsible, as well as some segments of the business sector and of course, crypto-Liberals. These we will punish with our votes and voices until they turn back from their short sighted policies. We will also hold homeowners who profit off of globalism with jacked up rental prices and air bnbs accountable.

Re: “Landlord 101: the dos and don'ts

People are too scared of losing their housing to speak out about the mass numbers of slum lords in the sea to sky area who raise rents illegally or go months or years without fixing things knowing that if the tenants complaints they will just find new ones and raise the rents. It seems to me it's gotten worse over the past year since the Liberals took office, and they are planning on bringing in more immigrants, so these issues will only get worse.
