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 pretty sure this one is self explanatory.
Question: Is Valentine’s Day important to you?
Sharon Berry – Manager, Husky grocery store – Gondola Area
Yes, I think it is if you have someone special in your life. It’s just another opportunity to remind them how much you care.
Dorothy Stenger – Lifite, Blackcomb Mountain – White Gold Estates
Sure it is. It’s the only time of year you have a possibility of getting flowers! It’s also nice because it’s the only day of the year that’s totally devoted to two people who are in love.
Don Turner – “Pacheena” stage manager – Alpha Lake Village
I think it’s important because it’s a good day to be close to your family and other people you like. I always give my mum and my sister something just to remind them I love them.
