Re: “Whistler's MLA looks into corridor gas prices

Fuel prices. Suggest one downloads gasbuddy. Regular gas is $130.9 in Pemby versus $149.9 in Whistler. Consider that a full size truck will use a couple of litres to go to and from Pemby from Whis, and you are ahead of the game. Drop by NAF and pick strawberries. Double bonus.

Re: “Public gets latest look at 'big ideas' proposed for Whistler's parks

Rainbow parking. Parkhurst parking. There is no transit, ergo parking issues. Rather than building more parking, build transit options. Has no one ever heard of "induced demand".

Wiki- Induced demand is the phenomenon that after supply increases, more of a good is consumed. This is entirely consistent with the economic theory of supply and demand; however, this idea has become important in the debate over the expansion of transportation systems, and is often used as an argument against increasing roadway traffic capacity as a cure for congestion. This phenomenon, called induced traffic, is a contributing factor to urban sprawl. City planner Jeff Speck has called induced demand "the great intellectual black hole in city planning, the one professional certainty that everyone thoughtful seems to acknowledge, yet almost no one is willing to act upon.

Re: “Whistler council awards $1.4M contract for Meadow Park Sports Centre expansion

"TM Builders was able to achieve initial cost savings of an anticipated $115,000 thanks to the removal of several minor conditions, such as a site office."- LOL. A site office costs about $300 per month plus $2700 set up.

Re: “What's stopping people in B.C. from buying an electric vehicle?

Build an electric equivalent to my dodge ram v8 and maybe. But then what about all the driving we do up in the boonies? ie Bralorne? Electric stations in rural areas? Then yes. I would buy electric.
