Any communication in a storm?
Is this a joke? Ever since "we" won
the bid, Whistler became the world's Whistler, everyone's Whistler. The world
sees the entire Sea to Sky corridor as one big community. Can we stop bickering
over who gets what like a bunch of children and focus on the real issue here?
The lack of pertinent valuable information available to the members of the Sea
to Sky community, on issues affecting our own backyard, is appalling.
Who knows, G.D. Maxwell, maybe these anonymous
advertisers have grow ops in their basements and they're paranoid, or maybe
they're Buddhists who want to remain anonymous because they don't have names
anymore. Do you read a moving anonymous poem and say, "who wrote
that!" and claim it's meaningless and suspect without an author?
Who cares who is behind the ad? The fact that
it is there points to a serious problem, more serious than who gets a stupid
arena. What about when there is a toxic spill in a local river, and the people
whose drinking water could be poisoned aren't informed. Local sources are
sparse and unreliable. Not everyone watches TV, or listens to the radio, and
where is the local (important) info there anyway? We have to defer to rumours
and overheard conversations of local workers, or read an article in a Toronto
newspaper (Globe and Mail, Saturday, Aug.6, ?Train derails...?). The only
reliable source of information in a crisis becomes the RCMP. Like communication
is their speciality.
