Re: “'Dismal' staffing struggles worsen in Whistler

I agree it all comes down to the housing issue and also the high cost of operating costs in the village and creekside as a business owner.
I have a small business in Function with a very affordable rent and EVEN I still find it hard to turn a profit after I make sure my staff are being paid enough to stay not only in a whistler but with me.
We service a local clientele from Vancouver to Lillioet.
This summer has been the slowest I've seen in the 7 years I've been here. I even close weekends now in the summer.
Is it because the locals are attending the many festivals ( with their limited spending dollars) that have come here or they are getting away from them?? I dunno... But I know my business is suffering from it too!!
In general I think the creekside & village landlords should be more small business friendly and help out revitalizing this town and for the slum lords out there to smarten up and stop gouging the young people that want to come and live the dream without doing it in poverty. I think that would leave a better taste in everybodies mouth to help rebuild this amazing town we all love!!

Re: “Whistler RCMP ask for assistance in locating missing woman

At least we have more of an idea, with the new RFID of where to start looking compared to last year. I hope she is found safe and sound!
