In the 1980s the Whistler Question began posing a question to three to six people and publishing their responses under “Whistler’s Answers” (not to be confused with the Whistler Answer). Each week, we’ll be sharing one question and the answers given back in 1983. Please note, all names/answers/occupations/neighbourhoods represent information given to the Question at the time of publishing and do not necessarily reflect the person today.
Some context for this week’s question: We’re not sure context is necessary for this question.
Question: What is the best part of spring?
Gerry Hieter – Bartender – Brio
Actually, I feel kind of sad when spring comes around here. Everyone splits up – all the buddies you’ve met during the winter go their separate ways. But with all the new leaves and flowers around I can still feel a bit of that school’s-almost-out feeling though.
Ross Nichol – Chartered Accountant – Emerald Estates
Spring is wonderful – it means that winter peels back her mantle, lengthening the days and letting the sun come in. People can breathe and feel free again in spring.
Gayle Outhwaite – Ski Shop Assistant Manager – Nesters Road
I enjoy all the people around and the fact that they’re all happy. It’s sunny, it’s almost summer, we can be outside more, it’s just a nice time of year. I won’t be falling in love because I already am.
