Over-the-top customer service

We want to send out a big thank-you to the hard working staff at the various establishments we visited during a recent Whistler weekend getaway in our trailer.

My husband and I were both blown away by the enthusiastic customer service we encountered everywhere we went including Wild Wood Bistro, Black's Pub, Purebread, Riverside RV, Cow's Ice Cream, the Plaza and Adele Campbell art galleries.

Thanks Whistler — well done!

Fiscal reminder needed

The other night I saw the debt clock on the news. Scary.

May I suggest that we put this massive obtrusive clock in the premier's office? This would well serve as a reminder to be frugal and resourceful.

Accompanying this, maybe one office wall can be wallpapered with a picture of a decaying, bankrupt Detroit, a mere $8 billion in debt.

No sooner than "not elected," our premier, Christy Clark, waved her magic wand and gave massive raises across the board to senior civil administrators. The election before last Ms. Clark created a position for Pamela Martin, ex news anchor, the salary (well over $100,000) was more than any MLA was making at the time and when asked what her duties would be she had not a clue.

Shortly after that interview, she declined all interviews. Hmmmm. Wonder Why? May I be honest here? Yes, that would be nice for a change.

The writing is on the wall. It spells, Greece, Italy, Portugal, Detroit and Cana... etc etc.
