The province has yet to come through with the supplementary homeowners grant.

And in the last two years council has rejected at least two development proposals that included substantial employee housing because they were deemed, on balance, to cause greater environmental or social detriments than benefits.

None of these decisions over the past three years has been simple or easy. Whistler is a complex, disparate community of people and ideas. It is also presented with opportunities that other communities would love to have.

On Nov. 16 this disparate community of people will have a chance to decide who among the 20 candidates should make decisions for them for the next three years.

Three years is a long time in Whistler.
