Protect pure backcountry

Editor, I am a new resident of Squamish who took up skiing this past year. I discovered that the backcountry access in Squamish was better than I could have imagined.

Billboard brouhaha absurd

Editor, I find the negative response to the Squamish Nations plan to install a sign on the highway disturbing. The non-Native community has hundreds of signs along the highway advertising everything from our own town to cars and restaurants.

Editorial: Our front gate

It's the issue that just won't die. Making a good first impression is an issue that has dogged the community for years, and it has often culminated in the concept of "gateway" signage.

Sweet summer sips

In the summer, I naturally gravitate towards great summer wines like Pinot Gris, Rieslings, and sparkling wines. However, as much as I love wine, a recent dining experience at Pepe and Gringo's reminded me of how much I love a good lime margarita.

Many visitors will be in town this weekend for the 52nd Annual Squamish Days Loggers Sports Festival and I am sure we will give them a friendly welcome to our community.

Editor, Elders remind us of not wasting anything, regardless of how much or how little is left. But when it comes to harvest the tasty salmon over the seasons, that's a different story.

GAS is a shame

Editor, I went for a swim in beautiful Brohm Lake today, and was reflecting on the Garibaldi at Squamish (GAS) proposal. I believe it is a shame to even be considering it.

Shut down GAS

Editor, We, the people of Squamish have the power to shape our community. We have the power to refuse to stretch our boundaries to include the GAS development into the District of Squamish (DOS).

Initiatives can alter landscape in many ways

Tuesday I brought forward a motion that "staff investigates a 'No New Water' commitment that would explore the potential of meeting all new water demands through the efficient use of existing supplies" The intent is to stimulate constructive dialogue
