Thanks for the question.

We strongly believe that tourism and industry can co-exist in Squamish – a point we think was made best by Jared Sissons at the Executive Suites Hotel in a recent article in The Chief.

“Take a look at Stanley Park, for example, and look out on English Bay,” he said in an interview with editor Christine Endicott. “You see 14 or 15 tankers and it has no effect on Stanley Park. It’s important to have industry in a community because it creates jobs and it creates tourism dollars as well.”

In your question, you also asked about odours. Woodfibre will not emit any smells or odours beyond the boundaries of our site. And you don’t have to take our word for it. The Oil and Gas Commission has strong regulations to ensure this is always the case.
