Hello and thank you for your question.
We are listening closely to the community to hear what people have to say about our proposed Project. As part of that we have participated in three rounds of comprehensive public consultations.
In addition to our formal consultation efforts, we also conducted some public opinion research in the summer of 2014. That research indicated that attracting new industries for jobs and tax base remained the most urgent improvement to improving the quality of life in Squamish, followed by improving job opportunities for young people. While 38% of surveyed residents (particularly new residents) viewed Squamish as a tourism town, most residents (59%) believed industry and tourism can co-exist.
