This brings me to additional launch sites. We were told that the new development next to Lakeside park would incorporate an additional launch site. At this time it looks like no launch has been included in the development plans. We need members of the public to help keep the launch at Carleton Way in Alta Vista open and let the muni know we need additional boat launches for use by everyone.

As a commercial operator we employ many families who live and work in the resort. Whistler is popular for many reasons, including its beauty and diverse recreational activities. If the proponents are successful in closing the launch it is in effect the first knife in the back of Whistler's success. Do you want the headlines to read "Whistler closes the door on recreation"?

I am compassionate to the residents of Alta Vista and their concerns as their neighbourhood is getting busier in the summer. So are all of ours. Whistler is getting popular in the summer. Can we please lobby the muni for additional launch sites and not be pointing the finger at other locals who are trying to enjoy the resort also?
