Re: “Whistler Remembrance Day ceremony marks 100 years since the end of the First World War

Nice ceremony but requires a better sound system for the number of people attending. Set up was poor for size of crowd.

Re: “On the Beat: RCMP Cst. Bernie Edmunds

Great article! Always nice and refreshing to hear about Police Officers wanting to show the public that they are just as human as we are and that sometimes their genuine intentions can be misconstrued. Good for him for educating and opening up to the young men he coaches.

Re: “Housing scams persist

$390 per person per month?!?

You'd be better off buying a car and offering solid carpool schedules. Would cost less than that, you'd be far more flexible than 2 trips each way and you'd have a car.

2 trips each way per day will make a lot of people out purely on that. Pemberton Commuter #99 last trip back to Pemby is at 6:05pm, so that's anyone in restaurant, bar, nightclub, potentially retail, lift ops that are unable to take it.

OMG. A bear banger would have scared it away. And her cubs would have followed.

Re: “Bear dies in fall from tree after being tranquilized by COS

Better yet, why don't people learn to live with bears in the area... they will feed up on those berries and when they are gone, they will go hibernate as long as garbage, etc. is cleaned up. We need a huge educational system into teach everyone proper bear behaviour, not the fear mongering from the past. Poor bears always lose. Wake up people.

Re: “Bear dies in fall from tree after being tranquilized by COS

Are black bears endangered? Are there plenty of other habitats around BC? Will the loss of a handful of bears in Whistler each year have a damaging effect on the overall population? If they weren't cute would anyone care so much?

Re: “Bear dies in fall from tree after being tranquilized by COS

Wtf! They were eating berries on mountain ash! It is natural food. How could this be food conditioned? Relocation doesn't work, long distance or short distance. The north shore community has offered to donate a catch net to COS several times and there is a very successful model in the market, only cost $1500. But always met with indifference and cold shoulder from the COS. We need to replace these hunter/killer with real biologists and environmental technicians. Otherwise they will never change their immoral unethical operation mode.

Re: “Bear dies in fall from tree after being tranquilized by COS

Hopefully COS has learned a lesson in anticipating (key word) any bears reaction to being tranquilized. That net should have been purchased long ago, not wait until a tragedy has taken place. Orphaned cubs, this late in the year, probably dont have a great chance for survival.
SUGGESTION: As mentioned, homeowners MUST be mandated to remove ALL attractant trees. Then, how about a citizens coalition to plan a large-scale planting of trees bearing fruits etc that bears like. COS should work with them in choosing locations far enough away from residential areas for such an endeavor to be safe. We owe it to the bears for moving into their territories. Its the least we could do.
