I encourage other businesses to get on board by becoming a sponsor for an event or by sending their employees to Welcome Week Events to encourage fostering healthy connections in the community.

Re: Proposed private MRI clinic in Whistler

This proposal in no way contributes to the destruction of Canada's Medicare system. We have a two-type system now, (public and private). Private Clinics are used by the following: ICBC, WCB, RCMP, military, private insurance companies, out of country visitors and, last but not least, some of our politicians.

Until our public system can afford to put an MRI at Whistler let the doctor do so at his expense. It will cut the long wait times for all of us living in the Sea to Sky corridor.

Defending democracy

"Lest we forget", Remembrance Day cries out for us to honour the fallen by defending democracy today. Some really lay it on the line, like my cousin serving with the Canadian Armed Forces in Afghanistan protecting their fragile democracy.

Even here, though, we can do something, such as taking part in the discussion about the government's referendum on a new voting system for B.C. (see www.stv.ca).
