Ivana

Draw entry answer by Ivana for the Whistler Museum event "Whistler's Mountain Identity [...]". In response to the question "What would you like to say about the past, present, and future of Whistler's Mountain Identity?" Ivana responded:

"I think we should slow down or even better stop any future development and focus on quality of our relationship with the mountain, not on quantity of visitors."
