A huge thank you goes out to our sponsors, artists, and volunteers. Walsh Restoration was our Presenting Sponsor, and integral to the success of the evening.

Thank you Whistler for supporting another Whistler Friends event - we'll see you at the next one!

This letter was addressed to mayor and council. A copy was forwarded to Pique for publication.

We read with great regret the decision of council to send $50,000 out of our community and are writing to implore you to reverse your decision. While we agree in theory with the idea of carbon credits, we feel they are a last resort. The effectiveness of carbon credits is still under debate.

If the money is spent locally, you maintain control and can verify the effectiveness of the project. There are several projects that could reduce emissions in the long-term right here in Whistler. As an example, you could purchase insulated blinds or shutters to reduce energy loss through the windows of the new Whistler Library.
