The Ministry of Environment, Lands and Parks is not developing a condominium project in Nordic Estates, as reported two weeks ago. Don van der Horst said last week the ministry has a tentative deal with Bosa Brothers for the property on Whistler Road, between Nordic Drive and Wolverine Crescent. The ministry initiated a rezoning application in 1992. The application, which was approved two weeks ago, allows for 44 townhouse units on the site. In return for the zoning the ministry has indicated it will hand over Lot 72 in Nordic for municipal park land. Lot 72 is an undevelopable area immediately north of Rim Rock. A creek runs through the property. van der Horst said the ministry is not in the development business, but will sell land with zoning.

Mom and pop, Patrice Binette, checked into the Whistler Health Care Centre about 6:30 a.m. and were told they should be able to get to Lions Gate Hospital in time.
