"Wish some and many things had stayed as they were. Progress has not necessarily been better in some areas. Traffic is out of control. Too much push for more visitors and profits. Parking at Creekside should be pay if anywhere is pay."

"Raine + Beck and others conceived and planned this beautiful place. The mix of nature and fantastic amenities makes this a special place. There is/was a balance. We are losing this balance because we have not managed our success. We are getting too big for this valley, we will lose the balance. Capacities are stretched everywhere. We must get control."

"{I don't know my English enough to say my thinking} I feel so love and passion of people (community) here and that makes Whistler as a very special place. Sometimes Whistler looks like snowy- 'Disneyland' means a bit busy but all age's skier could enjoy to being here, which is wonderful. I am afraid that we might break environment of nature like water, garbage, and trees...after our development. Thank you so much for the wonderful stories tonight."
