Letters to the editor


It is great to see community support and a crew of people rally for something they believe in. Over the last month a group of dirt bikers that includes kids, parents, business owners and adrenaline junkies have banned together as the Green River Riding Club. The club, named after the Green River which flows from Whistler to Pemberton, saw its first fund-raiser at Garfinkel’s June 19. It was a great success.

The newly formed club would like to thank all the people who came out to support us and especially the following sponsors: Garfinkel’s, Whiski Jack Resorts, Stella Artois, No Limits Motor Sports, West Coast Off Road Hummer Tours, Vision Motor Sports, Adventure Ranch, Cougar Mountain ATV, SMD Automotive, Lordco Auto Parts, Blackcomb Helicopters, Kypriakis, Evolution Cycles, Tapley’s, Evergreens Restaurant, Caramba, Billibong Clothing, Toad Hall, Diamond Head Yamaha, Valley Chainsaw, Fanatyk Co., and Fox.

On Sunday, June 24, we experienced a touch of grace in Whistler.

The inaugural service of the Whistler Village Church at the new Maurice Young Millennium Place was a magnificent and touching multi-denominational celebration.

We wanted to take a moment to thank the people who first had the dream of an Interfaith Church, then created a plan and with more people coming on board and with tremendous determination saw that plan manifest into a unique multi-use facility.
