Block the US Auction of Whistler Blackcomb

We call upon you to act to block the auction on February 19th of Intrawest’s Whistler Blackcomb resort by a group of US investors seeking to recoup a $1.4 billion of bad debt owed to a US hedge fund, at the back of which is the bankrupt Lehman Brothers Bank of the USA.

Should a handful of wealthy US hedge fund investors ignore such a request and move forward with their disruptive and provocative auction, we call upon you to expropriate the Whistler Blackcomb resort without compensation to protect the interests of BC and Canadian taxpayers in this a valuable Canadian cultural and natural asset.

Yours Truly
