This week's letters

Page 3 of 8

Fortunately for us Whistler has a strong sense of community and we are surrounded by amazing people who are willing to help friends in need. The missing Prawn seemed catastrophic to us in the beginning, but has been turned to a minor bump in the road of life thanks to the support of all of our wonderful friends.

KLC and I would like to thank everyone for their support, stylish clothing donations, and financial assistance (special thanks to Dirty Beats Lindsey). Huge hugs and lots of good energy to all you fabulous souls that have made us feel proud and happy to be a part of this frickin’ fantastic community!

A seriously sincere thank you.

Chili Thom and KLC


Last week as I parked my car in the Town Plaza Parking; I noticed seven propane fuelled taxis parked right beneath the Delta Whistler Village Suites.

So this is a letter of questions and concerns. Delta Whistler Village Suites, did you know about the taxis? Whistler fire department, did you know about this? Isn't there a law against parking propane fuelled vehicles underground? If the propane leaks, are these vehicles potential bombs?

To the Resort Municipality of Whistler, are you going to check all the underground parking lots, to make sure there aren't any potential bombs there? I'm sure the visitors to our wonderful resort would feel better if you did.

Please remind parents that at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 2 at Spring Creek Community School, there will be a Community Information Meeting regarding French Immersion in Whistler. This would be a universally available program.

Dr. Rick Erickson, District Superintendent, will convene this meeting to present information about French Immersion in Whistler and to allow parents to ask questions before they complete a French Immersion survey. Parents of pre-school children are encouraged to attend as well as parents of elementary school age children. Childcare will be provided.

The program is to be run at Spring Creek CS and the school district will not provide bus service to children outside the SCCS boundary area. It is possible that parents could privately organize transportation – so if you live within the Myrtle Philip CS boundaries don’t write French Immersion off.

If your children are in grades that will not be in the initial phase of the French Immersion program, just answer as if their grades will have an immersion program. While we cannot expect to see a full French Immersion high school curriculum, parents have proposed an Honours French course at the high school level. This would benefit graduates of the elementary French Immersion program and L'École la Passerelle. Please remember that the survey is an expression of interest and not a commitment or registration for French Immersion, so you may answer without restraint.
