Whistler-Blackcomb picked a fight with The Rebel due to pressure from an anonymous US based lobby group called Sleeping Giants. I’m disappointed that such an iconic part of my life has taken a shot me, my friends and colleagues at the fastest growing media company in Canada but there’s an irony here that you should know about too.
Whistler as a destination has always been a part of the lives of everyone in the lower mainland. In fact, I don't know a single person who hasn’t visited, spent money, and enjoyed all the resort has to offer.
And despite it being a worldwide destination, Whistler always had this small town resort feeling but that changed in 2016, when the locally owned ski resorts, were sold to the US based globalist Vail Resorts for a cool $1.4B.
Environmentalists and activists hate ski resorts and golf courses, something parent company Vail Resorts operates in numerous places around the world and despite sucking up to environmental groups, Vail has still been on the receiving end of eco-terror attacks on their resorts.
Watch as I provide a few examples of attacks from radical activists that illustrate why this move by Whistler-Blackcomb and their PR hack Sarah Morden (the mayor’s daughter) is so misguided and ironic.
They’re now bowing to those same activists on behalf of Sleeping Giants who I don’t think would stop their activism against Vail or Whistler-Blackcomb just because they made a rash knee-jerk decision to do something “virtuous” by pulling ads from our site.
I hope Whistler-Blackcomb will reconsider but I’m not counting on it unless they hear from us.
Let Whistler-Blackcomb know that their reactionary decision to bow to pressure from an anonymous US lobby group targeting a company supported by the grassroots, won't be accepted so easily.
