Worst Pemberton trend


Oh crap, not again! Last year's winner for worst trend is also this year's winner and it makes nobody happy. Drum roll... Voters have piled on their dislike of the perils of horse and dog poop. Maybe if owners clean up after their animal friends, we could have a new Worst Pemberton Trend next year.

Bike and car wars came second because war is bad.

Best use of money


The village's BMX track made enough Pembertonians happy for it to be chosen as the best spend in the community. "The bike park is a success because of the community volunteers and initiative, and the community support both government and non-government that made it happen. It benefits being beside the little pump track and the skateboard park," Mayor Jordan Sturdy said.

In second place is the aforementioned skateboard park, and also placing is the farmers' market/local produce and the improvements to the One Mile Trail.

Worst use of money


A repeat "Worst of" from 2012, the project we love to be annoyed most about is again the Pemberton Community Centre. Mayor Jordan Sturdy guessed it before he was told. "I think the community centre will serve Pemberton well for the decades to come. It does fill a need and is well used," he said. "If we were to do it again, we've learned from the experience and we will continue to learn as we take on more recreational initiatives.

Surveys and studies are also a money pit to readers and came second, while the Ironman Canada Race came third.

Best new business


Solfeggio, the wholefood restaurant that opened this summer, came out on top with dozens of votes. Co-owner Edward Dangerfield said: "It's great to hear this. We have amazing local support, which is evident in the voting." Pemberton, he added, seemed to be ready for a different kind of restaurant that is "a little more city." He added that the restaurant is planning to serve dinner starting mid-October.

Tadasana Yoga and Wellness Studio came second and One Earth Collection came third.
