Re: “Housing policy continues to evolve

Im running for mayor in the next election. One of my first policies will be to redistribute monies from the fake global warming hoax and United Nations agenda programmes that the current administration is beholden to, and create incentive programmes for developers to build regular apartment buildings like they used to be and cap the starting rents at 600 for a bachelor, 900 for a one bedroom and 1200 for a two bedroom. I will also be pulling Whistler out of all so called smart technologies, so as to better create an ACTUAL healthy environment for HUMANS. I want those roads cleared in the Winter time, with whatever solution works best for getting rid or black ice. The sides of the roads Im sure will be OK with a little bit of chemical if it saves HUMAN lives. Im also going to limit the impact of our roads from all these fake festivals, so as to better allow LOCAL traffic to flow, while limiting the amount of weekend traffic from all the globalist hipsters coming up for their photos for Instagram. Together, we are going to Make Whistler Healthy Again, we are going to Make Whistler Happy Again, and we are going to Make Whistler Pique Honest Again! Our new credo will be: Bring LOCAL Back! Merci, Merci!

Re: “Getting hosed on gas

BC needs a provincial energy program to look out for the consumer.

Re: “Getting hosed on gas

Thats because the Eco fascists that YOU support are anti Canadian and anti Energy sector. They are extremists...like you. Its time to stop hiding behind the fake global warming hoax and give Canadians OUR money back. And its time for The Pique to stop playing games with the truth. No more getting hosed by hosers!

Re: “Seeking transparency

Just remember how Harper managed the availability to the press of our public servants:

Intimidate them into silence under threat of dismissal then stonewall the press requests with an army of "little boys in short pants" at the PM's office.

Surely Jack doesn't want to be thought of as a west coast Stephen Harper!

Re: “Seeking transparency

Whistler Pique is the least transparent news magazine in British Columbia...and thats saying a lot! Justin Trudeaus Liberals are the least transparent government in Canadian history...and that is also saying a lot! Think Ill start a Libertarian magazine since you keep banning me, Claire.

Re: “Are we heading for tree museums?

According to a Princeton university study the increase in CO2 has lead to an increased greening of earth. The Amazon jungle had as many as 20 million people living in ancient cities some 500 years ago. It grew back to such an extent that we thought it was untouched.

Re: “Is it goodbye to Ironman?

The level of short sighted, classist, nimbyism that this event generates is unbelievable. Some people clearly can't see the bigger picture and enjoy biting the hand that feeds them. I almost look forward to the inevitable dip in visitors and the associated whinning from the plebs about how quiet they are and how thier untaxed tips have gone.

Re: “Are you ready to evacuate?

Another dome and gloom Armageddon scenario from the Pique. Imagine someone reading this paper from a third world country . They must think theres plastic bags and straws flying around everywhere and the climate is so hot the place must be on fire.

If i keep my gas tank full wont that cause the fire in the first place?

Re: “New SAR funding a good start

THIS IS MAGA COUNTRY! I told you in 2015 (before you banned me) and I'm still saying it: Patriotism NOT Globalism. Tourists come to Canada and pollute our formerly pristine natural environments for photos and likes on Instagram/Facebook etc. Tourists place themselves in dangerous situations, causing undue stress and danger to our search and rescue teams. To be sure, GLOBAL WARMING IS A HOAX...but if you care about Canadian search and rescue teams and our CANADIAN environment, stop runaway tourism NOW!

Re: “Action on climate change is urgent, say our youth

I love how the girl at the very front of the protest picture is carrying along her single use coffee cup.
Classic example of how people "want change" yet are not willing to make the changes themselfs and expect others, such as the government, to do their thinking for them.

Re: “Action on climate change is urgent, say our youth

Dear Clare, another wonderful article about the youth climate change demonstration. I think it is good that you support them and that you call out Ralph for his short shortsightedness. I think it is also interesting that the opposite page is a full page ad for No Limits heli adventures. "More helicopters, more tours, More value is the slogan. Later in this issue (p 17) is the article about Destination BC and how "tourism presents and enormous growth opportunity". International travel set to double says Heather Boyd. True there is a stated desire to be "sustainable" but is it realistic to think that this goal can be achieved with the impact of ever more jet travel, heli tours, "disperse" tourism and just building to meet demand. No mention of any capacity limitations. It is hard for me not to believe that the youth who protest have a very uncertain future as there is no sign that anything is going to change that will make the difference they need.

Re: “Thanks for the memories

Great comments Clare. Indeed our capacities are stressed and I am hopeful that this is finally getting the attention it deserves on council. They now speak of "comfortable capacity of visitation" The missing component is the definition of that capacity, how it is objectively measured and how it is managed. I would suggest we are at that capacity already and the danger is that adjustments take time to happen. Just like driving a car one should be anticipating rather than reacting to speed and road conditions. But at least the topic is on the table. As you suggest we should now be "stepping away from the continual push" slowing things down to get under control for a successful and sustainable future. Thanks for your article.

Re: “The collision of long weekends

It is disappointing that the tourist industry and the ski industry continue to whine about the change to conform our family day to the date of other provinces for the benefit of families to be able to get together. The ski industry particularly here in whistler is enjoying very good business every weekend and it just seems selfish for them to propose that the province should leave the weekend separate from the other provinces so that they might benefit from an additional even more busy weekend. Hotel occupancy in whistler is higher than it has ever been with room rates more than double before. Families that ski do so on many weekends and there are many that look forward to using a common holiday weekend to visit others in their family. Having the weekends separate meant that many families had no long weekend at all as they had to work on both. It is by popular demand that the weekend was moved and I am sure not by any ill will towards the tourism industry. The tourism industry benefits from many government programs. It should be grateful and not try to force everyone to structure everything for its own self interest.

Buy earlybird epic pass. Brown bag it. Yes, I said it. And ski lots. Best money spent.

Re: “What will the future hold?

If they were to bring back the 5 & 10 day edge card for BC and Washington State residents and make it available throughout the season, they might have a small chance of winning back those skiers. As it stands, there's a huge perception that they're simply getting ripped off and refuse to come here even for one day. I don't think enough of those people will be pushed into a season's pass purchase if things were to stay the same.
