Regardless, your actions are a reminder that sadly there are people in this world who have no conscience or morals. Hope you had a wonderful Christmas, you gave me the best present EVER as I've always wanted a headache that lasted for five solid days, (not to mention the neck, shoulder and back pain) and I love the fact that it's going to cost a lot for physio!

Time to find a voice?

I think that if the pipeline is a huge Canadian issue our resort should play a big part in the outcome. Could we please see more anti-pipeline solidarity? Solidarity means a showing of opinion and strength. Is Whistler right or left? If we are hoping, like the leftists, to protect the land, then let's protest! Don't give the rich companies everything they want — make them stop!

I am a resident living in Europe and have lived first hand the wonderful protests here. And it all leads to looking for signatures and changes in the common working of the law — a nation calling for a change in the constitution.

More protests!

Community steps up

Once again, the community of Whistler has come together to support those in need. These past few months, numerous individuals and businesses have shown their support of the Whistler Community Services Society (WCSS) Food Bank.

WCSS would like to thank those who have taken the time and made the effort in one or all of the following ways: organizing a Food Drive, making the food bank a recipient of a staff event, donating proceeds from a club get together, donating unsold food items from a store, or making a non-perishable food item (or cash) for the food bank an entrance requirement to a party, sporting event etc. The list of supporters is extensive.

Big Thanks to Nesters, IGA, Creekside and The Grocery Store and to the many individuals and businesses who have been filling the donation bins there. With the busy season upon us and the usage at the food bank at a steady high, it is encouraging to see how the shelves at the food bank have been filling.

Many users of the food bank are seasonal workers who arrive and expect to find work quickly, but find that harder than expected, or are unable to secure full-time hours right away. There are also many locals who often find a bit of lag time between their regular summer and winter jobs and if that down time is longer than expected they need the food bank.

In both cases, individuals and families may need a bit of assistance to get through financially until their next cheque comes in.
