Wouldn’t that be in the spirit of this whole Sustainability issue which is all over town right now? The first of the three "R’s" in reduce, reuse, recycle.

Oh yes, and if we can not do anything within the community (start a petition?) I suggest that locals who feel like I do, call the customer service line of Canada Post at 1-800-267-1177. Graciously, the friendly people from Canada Post have now opened a file with my name on it to check into the fact that I am getting a piece of mail that is NOT addressed to me and that I don’t want. After all, I am paying rent for this mail box. Maybe we can start something here if enough of us call Canada Post?

Forget about talking to the folks at The Question itself They are only concerned about reporting that ALL people of Whistler are reading their newspaper. Yeah, right.

WOW! We live in a great community! Over the past few weeks, our family of four have been participants in two tremendously successful and positive community events; namely the "Pemberton Loppet", and more recently, the "Caribbean Night."

• "THANK YOU" to all those countless volunteers who contributed so much time and energy to provide such positive events for people of our community of all ages. It is really appreciated!

• "THANK YOU" to all the sponsors who generously provide prizes time and time again. There are so many worthwhile events and activities where you faithfully give.

• "THANK YOU" to other community "folk" who give so much positive feedback and encouragement to our girls (ages 7 and 4 ). It is wonderful to attend events where our kids have so much fun, participate in really positive activities, surrounded by such caring people.

All in all, we feel very blessed to live where we do.

Re: World Economic Forum

I have read with interest the recent articles regarding the hosting of the World Economic Forum in Whistler. I contribute this information for the simple fact that my firm, Ecosign Mountain Resort Planners Ltd., has been working on the planning of the ski areas and village in Davos, Switzerland since 1994. I have travelled to Davos well over 30 times during that period and have come to know the mayor, a number of city councillors, the head of the Tourist Office, main shareholder of the ski lift company, the board of directors of the AG Davos-Parsenn-Bahnen (lift company) and many other local people. What surprises me greatly is the suggestions by Mayor O’Reilly and Councilor Milner of the rather benign consequences of hosting the World Economic Forum.
