On that point I hope that both towns come out for Chris Joseph's discussion on the pipeline March 27, 7 p.m. at the Howe Sound Inn in Squamish. See you there!

Fight cancer Saturday

There are lots of people who will remember me, the person who has fought the good fight against brain and breast cancer. I know there are many reasons I'm still here: friends, family, luck of the draw and the BC Cancer Agency.

On Saturday, March 24 I am taking part in the Balding for Cancer, fundraising for British Columbia Children's Hospital. The event at the GLC starts at 3:30 p.m., with the Hair Farmers!

Nobody deserves cancer, especially kids. The website address for donations is: https://secure.bcchf.ca/SuperheroPages/team.cfm?Event=BFD&Team=4923

If anyone would like to donate coins, bottles or cans please email leslie.eva.weir@gmail.com, my team and I will be happy to pick stuff up or come by.

Cancer Sucks but I'm still here and I'm awesome.

Leslie Weir,


PVTA going places

If you missed the Pemberton Valley Trails Association's (PVTA) 11th AGM held this week, then you'll want to renew your annual membership either online at www.pembertontrails.com, or the BikeCo or mail to Box 282, Pemberton.

Many volunteer hours have been spent on our trails and business related to the development of the network. The new Trail Map is awesome (thanks to Brigit Goldammer) and one of the new signs can be seen at One Mile Lake. The fundraiser held last June raised about $6,000 towards trail projects.

The PVTA is grateful for the support of the Village of Pemberton and the SLRD in these endeavours  for our community. There is a Trails Master Plan in place now and the first trail maintenance day for 2012 is planned for April 21. We are hosting the AGM for Trails B.C. April 29, which will be highlighting the Sea to Sky Trail, an offshoot of the TransCanada Trail. It will also be a chance to hear about the TCT and trail activities in other parts of B.C.

This year, plan to attend a monthly meeting held on the second Wednesday at 7 p.m. in the Rec Centre. Whether you are interested in commuter trails, bike trails, hiking trails or simply walking trails, your input is needed.
