Q: What vision do you have for Sparwood beyond the lifespan of current mining operations?

A: To ensure life after mining, it is important to diversify the economy of Sparwood. Building tourism opportunities would be a good start. Completion of the Whiskey Jack golf course would be a huge boost to the entire area, along with snowmobiling as a destination and marketing our rivers. Make it easier for small businesses to establish themselves in Sparwood and build a stronger base for the town. Business attracts business. Maybe make it more affordable for manufacturing and medium size business to open or relocate. Sparwood has the lifestyle for their employees.
