We finally managed to get a sit down with the owner of Gillespie's & Boozewitch, President of the Squamish Craft Beverage Association, and self professed troublemaker, Kelly Ann Woods, to chat about her industry and it's culture in Squamish - and who is none too pleased about the District's rezoning of the Business Park. www.gillespiesfinespirits.com https://squamish.ca/yourgovernment/projects-and-initiatives/2020-zoning-bylaw-update/

Taking a new direction

Taking a new direction

2019-07-0100:22:45

We caught up with outgoing Executive Director of the Downtown Squamish Business Improvement Association, Anne Kadwell, to chat about what direction her organization may be taking in the future. The BIA is proud to put on many big events (especially Canada Day), for all residents of Squamish – but perhaps they have grown beyond their scope and now take away from what the BIA are needed to do – advocate for downtown merchants. We also dive into the issues the BIA are facing now and what they might be dealing with in the future. And, of course, this year’s Canada Day celebration downtown and at Brennan Park.
Cheers Squamish!

Our pundit, Moe Freitag, has a wealth of experience working with all levels of government in the Sea to Sky region. In this edition, we chat about what the new council needs to be focusing on right out of the gate, working with Squamish Nation, building relationships, and ambushed him about election reform.
In our continuing real estate series, we talk with Pat Kelly, president of the Whistler Real Estate Company and a long time Whistler/Pemberton resident. We dive into the markets of the corridor, how they are different but all intrinsically linked with Vancouver, and other factors that may come into play (*cough* Garibaldi at Squamish *cough*). Curious about where the market is going? Have a listen and benefit from three decades plus of experience.
Just a few days until our newly elected council will be sworn in, so we had all of them swing by Happimess (at times it’s our unofficial studio) and reflect on the recent election. We talked about how to keep communication channels open, avoid the “Us vs. Them” mentality, and had a little fun. (www.happimess.net)
