Letters to the editor 

Dock Daze Productions would like to say thank you to all the people that made "The Grow Show" a huge success last week.

Thank you to Dale at Buffalo Bill’s for his support of comedy and all the extra’s that he helped us out with. Thanks to Dan at Silicon Printing for all his professionalism and assistance with all the technical screw-ups that we encountered. Thank you to Watermelon and her cast and crew including The Wet Spots for a very memorable evening (I think!) and finally thank you to all the locals and visitors alike that came out to support our "Grow Show".

I would also like to encourage all locals to continue to support our live comedy, theatre and other artistic ventures that are plentiful in Whistler. I have enjoyed numerous shows at Millennium Place, but sometimes I am disappointed by the small turn-outs that occur. Lately, the shows at Millennium Place have been enjoyed by almost full attendance, but we as a local community have to support the arts even more due to our relatively small and always shrinking full-time population. All the people that are buying houses in Whistler these days are buying their second, third, or fourth homes, so it is important to have the support of the locals that are still left in Whistler.

Thanks for everyone’s support and we look forward to presenting "Watermelon’s Christmas Grow Show" in December.

I have lived in Whistler as long as there has been a skate park here. The skateboard facility is world class, except for the damn water fountain. I can’t understand how it could be so neglected, it is covered in a green algae, there is no proper trigger mechanism, it has a hidden valve to turn it on. The reasoning, as it was told to me by a municipal employee, is that the people that use the facilities are all adolescent punks who have no respect, so in turn get none.

This makes my blood boil. Are all people who enjoy the sport of skateboarding to suffer the use of an unsanitary water fountain because of a few broken bottles every year? The people who break the bottles and leave the garbage are not the same people who properly use the park. How dare the township of Whistler let this slide for a decade because of the reputation of youths. Let’s get a grip here and realize that the youth of today are the adults of tomorrow. Treat us like scum and that’s what we become.
