Scope and content

Newspaper articles and press releases written by Brian Buchholz regarding Whistler's Remembrance Day services.

Items include:

001: "Lest We Forget: 11.11.11" newspaper article by Robyn Cubie found in the November 10, 2000 issue of Pique Newsmagazine. The article speaks about the origin of the name 'Mons' in Whistler, the origin of the names 'Birken' and 'Birkenhead', quotes from Brian Buchholz about Whistler's Remembrance Day ceremonies, and the background of retired air serviceman Brian Titterton of Whistler.
002: "'Veterans Highway' idea backed" newspaper article by Jennifer Miller found in the November 15, 2007 issue of the Whistler Question. The article speaks about the support several Sea to Sky veterans gave to the idea of turning the Sea to Sky Highway into the Sea to Sky Veterans Memorial Highway. Brian Buchholz gives his support also, although West Vancouver-Garibaldi MLA Joan McIntyre admits it would be a difficult project to complete due to the commitment to the Cultural Journey Sea to Sky project that was agreed to in partnership with the Squamish Nation and Lil'wat Nation.
