d b started this petition to Whistler Mayor and

Whistler now has more Covid cases than Vancouver and people continue to stream up here in droves to ski, drink, party ect. Last night there was a stream of vehicles heading out of Whistler after the ski hills closed and the line up for the mountain was 2 hours long. Our Mayor continues to tell the locals to do our part and not socialize, wear masks, and wash our hands while the rest of the world converges on our small town having their way. 

We have no hospital so visitors are crowding our health resources here. People forget that Whistler is not just the mountain and the people who work on it and ski on it. Whistler is a community of people who have lived here and brought up their families for many years and the fact of the matter is that there is a large population of over 60 year olds that are way more vulnerable than the young kids who come here to work or ski and party.

Over 40% of the employees on the mountain have Covid or are isolating because of contact. Unfortunately most of them live in the resident type accommodation the mountain supplies with 2 to 4 to a room so there are very few options to date of places for them to isolate.

At the very least the Mayor and Council should work with the mountain to provide isolation accommodation and step up to the plate to keep the locals safe by closing the drinking establishments and working with Vail to limit skiers to pass holders only like Big White did. Any other ideas suggestions are welcome!

I know those snake lines of autos heading south after the mountain closes daily are NOT essential workers.
