peg 0 per cent c Association of Whistler Realtors . - Think of the old timer in Emerald with the rental suite, and the property owners (long time locals) that rely on that rental income to meet their mortgage each month. This is also the reality of non-conforming space. Does the municipality relish taking that homeowner to task? Even if the resources were available, I would suggest the lawmakers would be remiss in their duty to the public if those resources were deployed in such a fashion as to address all of the non-conforming space in Whistler. Are we to turn a blind eye to some while confronting the one’s that make a good story?
