To conclude, we are pleased that a community-based recreational kayak program for schools and youth will be supported by this project. A program such as this provides long-term recreational opportunities to the communities in this area, and enhances the reasons why so many of us have chosen to reside here.

At a time when there are numerous concerns, and when so much conflict and confrontation over these concerns appears in the media, we wanted to express that from our perspective, there are individuals and companies making real efforts to hear concerns and address community issues and that their efforts are noticed and appreciated.

Roses are red, Violets are blue, Drugs are bad and so are you.

I was very disappointed when I walked out of the score booth at Meadow Park Sports Centre to have the smell of drugs being smoked by players from dressing room #3 - The Summit hockey team, Men’s A League. We did go and phone the RCMP but they would not come unless we knew exactly who was smoking it.

I find this very disappointing, after being a graduate from the D.A.R.E program, that the RCMP would not show up.

I’m pretty ticked at the hockey players themselves and the RCMP, because there were kids there a bit younger than me. It is Whistler Minor Hockey’s ice time until 8 p.m. (This is not the first time it has happened.) It does seem to be the in thing for men’s hockey in Whistler. It is not right that a visiting team and a home team should have to smell the drugs while showering after their game.

A hockey rink is no place for drugs so grow up!

The initial deadline set for selecting one of the five options provided in the Whistler. It’s Our Future Comprehensive Sustainability Plan (aka the O.C.P.) has now passed.

Unofficially, I have been informed that there is a chance of a short extension to the deadline, but no chance of a mail-out occurring to the second homeowner group. For this reason alone, I believe that the yet to be announced "preferred future option" should be deemed invalid due to the exclusion of this large group’s input.

Before I go on I will state that I do not oppose resident restricted housing. I do however, oppose development beyond 55,500 bed units. I do not support lifting the existing bed cap for development of any type.
