Re: “Quelling reefer madness

With all the new regulation, my fear especially when people are more open about puffing, is that the do-gooders will be more bold and report 'infractions' when they smell skunky doobage, resulting in fines. Who wants to run the risk a fine every time we imbibe? On the other hand, a group of people passing around joints outside my window when I don't want to smell it might warrant a call to the fuzz.

Re: “Whistler's prohibitive approach to smoking is dangerous

I personally confronted people flicking thier butts in the village. Its just plain gross and a fire hassard. I also noticed that most public ashtrays have been removed from village. Whats the solution...

Re: “Whistler's prohibitive approach to smoking is dangerous

I really think it would be a good idea to have a sign at the entrance to Whistler near Function and at the bus depot that educates people on proper disposing of butts. Many people come from other countries or cities where it seems acceptable to discard butts on the street and out car windows and it's become habit to toss them in the street. Maybe just a friendly sign that educates people on how butts are not okay anywhere on the ground in Whistler would also help.

Re: “Whistler's GHG emissions continue to rise

Arts Whistler has a staff of 14. I haven't seen any convincing evidence that planet earth will be uninhabitable for our children because of a lack of street performers and artisan theatre. Maybe its time to turn things upside down.

Re: “A matter of principal?

Re: “A matter of principal?

Andorra is no longer on the OECD blacklist, so not technically a tax haven. But being a low tax country, many do consider it to be.

More info here: https://andorraguides.com/tax/haven/

There are many parallels between Andorra and Canada, a few hours from an airport, lots of skiing, bike parks, loads of tourists buying crap they don't need, the list goes on.

But what Whistler lacks is the history. If the abandoned island of Liberland can't get independence, good luck getting it for a high income earning town in a high tax province of a high tax country!

Re: “Some home renos being done without proper asbestos testing, says electrician

Hi,
My friend recently hired a contractor to remove some drywall and while work was half way thru demolition, work safe B.C. came in and issued stop work order. He went thru all process of asbestos removal companies and all 4 companies were disapproved because work safe bc doesnt think they have enough expertise! Then they approved the most expensive ones. After removal of asbestos worksafebc gave clearance to continue work without any more demolition. As the owner explained how the removal process would have been done; to his surprise, it looked like not even as good as simple ganitorial cleaning. Nothing was done what worksafebc had in their report how it should have been done. I went with him to check it out, I found some drywall dusts were still present on the floor, no crawl space is cleaned, as a all old dust, debris and even spiderweb the disturbed. Cut outs of the drywalls still hanging in the air, nothing was cleaned under the deck. As per worksafebc, 3 inches of soil all around the house and under deck within 5 ft had to be removed and all the removal companies were quoting minimum of $12000 to do the job and only the company who quoted $19000 was approved. He is so disappointed to see what was done for the price he paid. He is unsure where and who to ask for this what he thinks is a kind of scam that work safe created so much fear over the asbestos and cleaning process. He is so stressful since he couldnt move out and he had rent for a month and it is expensive. If anyone has any idea and drop some words as to why worksafebc would create that much fear in his life and get $500 worth of janitorial work for $19000, it would be highly appreciable. It would be a great help!

Thank you!

Re: “Whistler's newest alpine offering opens for business

Yes been there done that very nice but this sort of attraction is not what makes whistler special to me. Many folks will come once and take a selfie and oh and aah at the view, which is more or less the view that was always there. Why one would want to go over the bridge in winter is beyond me but I guess some will and we will have more room on the ski runs. Our resort is based on active sports and sure we have our "diverse activities" I guess this qualifies. I think we need to prioritize the core active sports now and resolve the serious capacity, housing and traffic issues that more of this kind of attraction will only compound. Sadly I hear more of these "theme park, wow" type attractions seem to be in the plans of the tourist corporations. The really unfortunate thing about this bridge in winter is that is hangs over a ski run and certain weather conditions will load it up with rime and snow such that the run will be closed for safety concerns and that all the rime ice and snow will eventually fall onto the run below and become even more of a hazard. By the way I liked the view of and from the peak without it. Whistler needs to get control of the tourist corporations and figure out who is in charge here and set our priorities. Sightseeing or active sports. One way or the other our future needs to be clear and i will either like it or not but at least we will all know.

Re: “Beating the heat at Ironman

I met Sanderson along the route (as cheer support for a friend also in the race). Amazingly positive fellow. How do I donate to his campaign? I would be nice to see a direct link in the article.

Re: “Letters to the Editor for the week of August 2

Hello Mr. BW Becker,
As a business owner in Pemberton, I feel that I am justified in offering my answer to your elitist question, "...was it really too much?" Much as I would have preferred to read, "Thank you for your cooperation and community participation in the event for 5 years," I have to say that in my opinion three more days of financial losses in our 150 day yearly high season was too much to ask. Nor do I accept any responsibility for the perforated and detached retinas, damaged cardiac valves and kidney nephrons and loss of lifespan of the participating poorly trained athletes. The ambient temperature, the route chosen and the registration requirements were not decisions of mine or within my power to influence. Much as I admire the endurance and dedication of these elite athletes, my admiration does not put food on our table during the lean winter months. Thank you for taking time out of your busy schedule to publicly scold and attempt to shame me whether or not it is your place to do so.
Kind regards,
Evelyn Coggins
Pemberton BC

Re: “McMahon the man at Ironman

So much negativity here. I'm a resident, I made my plans to accommodate the closure, I did my homework and checked the websites and local newspapers ahead of time for information, so should you!! You have yourself to blame. If I were to go go on vacation with my family I would do my homework first in preparation. Second, I have not come across one rude person yet at these events, instead I've witnessed great sporting spirit with locals, tourists and athletes alike. Third, this has provided our local families and children a chance to volunteer and participate. Fourth, there is always some type of big event happening most weeks, If a business doesn't benefit from one event they will with others, everything works out in the wash. This is good for my local economy, If you don't like it then go somewhere else!
