Perhaps the Callaghan land can be sold to a golf course developer and we can use the money to buy back market housing for conversion to employee restricted.

Enough said; I’m sure others have better ideas to resolve this issue that don’t involve further building.

Any Whistler resident or property owner who feels that the current process should be halted before a decision is made to raise the bed cap should e-mail the mayor and council or send a letter to municipal hall.

Be sure to request a referendum as the only means to raise the cap.

I just wanted to write in that in general I really enjoy reading Pique and I look forward to each new issue. However, I was really offended by the Bearfoot Bistro ad this week. I thought a coloured picture of painted naked women was inappropriate and it made me uncomfortable. Thanks for listening.

Doing good things

Last week the Pique acknowledged the re-establishment of the Whistler Employment Centre. Truth is, the business community would have little more than a soulless space if not for the Whistler Community Services Society (WCSS), who along with the dogged determination of Marta Sutherland (and RMOW), funded the staff for this caring / competent resource centre. This is the same quiet little band of do-gooders who grabbed the void that thousands fall into this time of year and filled it with Whistler Welcome Week . Attach yourself to any community goal in town and you'll find WCSS got the funding, handled the administration, or organized the volunteers.

These masters of recycling help people who have less, get more through the Reuse-it-Centre, then plough the proceeds back into community ventures (and you think you've got a clever business model). Long after we've done our thing in Whistler, let’s just hope there’s the people who keep filling the implied mission of WCSS – doing good things.
