Gondola Corp hosts meeting April 12 in Squamish

We’ve been asked about the meeting that Sea to Sky Gondola Corp. plans to hold in Squamish on April 12th. (7 pm Howe Sound Inn, Squamish)

Those who are interested should consider attending, although it’s rather short notice. It may be difficult for the many from outside the Squamish area who are interested in this issue to attend. As with the other meetings that have been held in Squamish, it would be an opportunity for some to ask Mr. Greenfield, Mr. Dunn, and Mr. Hutchison about the details of their proposal. The meeting could not address the larger issues – whether land should be removed from Class A parks; whether land should be removed from these parks for this purpose; and ensuring that any process to consider such removals and their consequences is independent, transparent, inclusive, resourced, and complies with government policy.

FOSC may send an observer to this private meeting. However, it underscores the importance of all those interested in the fate of these world-class parks, from around the world, writing directly to the Premier and the other politicians, as soon as possible. It’s a government decision, and it’s the government that needs to hear your views on this.
