Tire slashing a shock

To the perpetrator who punctured my tires as well as my neighbours on the night of Sunday June 19, I can only ask WHY as I did nothing to justify this action.

The act was totally unexpected and shocking to have happened in Whistler. I can only compare it to the hockey riots and how the people in Vancouver felt the next day.

It is further compounded since I took the insurance off my truck (while) I am using my bike.

May karma come full circle.

Thanks for the rescue

Thank you! Thank you!

I would like to start off by saying thank you to all the Whistler Emergency Services. A special thanks goes out to the fire department for all of their hustle.

They got our fire under control quickly and kept it from spreading to the rest of the house. This, from what I understand, was quite a difficult task as the fire was essentially in the middle of the house on the middle floor.

As the ambulance stood by, we were thankful that no one was hurt in the fire.

Thank you to Geoff Playfair and his team for their hard work and professionalism. The house was not a complete loss but suffered heavy fire and smoke damage not to mention water damage.

We would also like to thank the people on Fitzsimmons Road South for doing the neighbourly thing and offering up their houses to us. Emergency Social Services were great in getting us all into the Aava Hotel for two nights until we could sort out alternative accommodation. Thank you for letting us have our dog in your hotel as well.

Let's not forget about the police who did their part in all the action.

And thank you to Dr. Pat Shuen for coming by after the fire to see if we needed anything for our little guy who is one year old. I really appreciate that.

I would like to thank Katrina Frew who is the GM of the Longhorn Saloon for having a fundraiser for our tenants. She went out of her way being the rockstar that she is and organized a silent auction. Thank you to all those who donated things for the auction too. I would also like to thank the Longhorn staff and Adam the DJ for the bidding war that went on and brought in most of the money. You guys were all awesome. The money will be split among the tenants to help them get back on their feet.
