Another year, another year of questions and answers!
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 1984. 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: This one seems pretty self explanatory, so we think we’ll leave it there.
Question: What is your New Year’s resolution?
Wendy Sayers – Student – Whistler (part-time)
I am going to lost five pounds. I make the same resolution every year, and I lose the same five pounds. We find it better not to have a set of scales up here.
Karl Asche – Student – Vancouver
I suppose I’ll get around to fixing my car.
Longbean Brassard – Brain Surgeon – Calgary
My resolution is that I won’t drink on New Year’s Day. Last year I made the same resolution and was able to live up to it for an hour.
(Editor’s Note: We interviewed Mr. Brassard early New Year’s Eve).
