So Right! Eco-Tourism success in Squamish gives us a healthy environment and jobs. As an event promoting volunteer it became obvious to me that Squamish is the fun capital! We’ve got whales!
Our estuary without federally funded dredging and with help from local groups is being restored.
I say NO to WLNG, Fortis BC and tankers.
Our challenge: to make eco-tourism viable year-round.
Squamish eco-tourism based on free environmental assets requires a broad range of jobs, transportation and accommodation solutions, added daycare and a well-funded emergency network.
For the thousands of visitors we need:
- Year round campgrounds that allow for trailers and long term stays. Present campground zonings must remain and more need to be added to protect our pristine waterways in our easily accessible forests. A tree-protection bylaw is a necessity. Mature trees are beautiful life-giving jewels.
- Transportation solutions must include more passenger train options, a commuter bus and full schedules daily for local buses and the handi-dart.
- Drop-in daycares would allow parents to play too.
- Our ever-present emergency crews need more funding and quicker access to medi-vac helicopters.
Summer events with amazing world-class competitions and music drew thousands of folks who would be quite happy to have fun in Squamish year-round. Our challenge is to make eco-tourism viable year round.
DOS STAFF and Council should say what I say!
NO TO WLNG! NO TO FORTIS BC! NO TO TANKERS!
