      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Climbers jumped at Squamish!!!

The campsite by the Aquatic centre is not a Provincial campsite

It is run and owned by the District of Squamish. It is a municipal campsite.

 

...and that's clearly the important point of discussion here... rolleyes.gifwazzup.gif

In the interests of accuracy; it is like me stating that Washington BLM land is a National Park.

Yowza. That's it, I'm sending my money to the Nigerians, I'll be rich soon. The first post here looked like nothing real, but the re-telling seems very different.

Shannon,

 

sorry to hear about your incident. As a canadian i can tell you that violence is a fact of life here, as it is all over the world. squamish is not immune. tourists are not immune either. i am satisfied that you and your friends will get a fair hearing. the RCM police i am sure, will listen. our press will help ensure that. We are listening.

 

I can tell you that although violence happens it is infrequent. Canada is a relatively peaceful place

 

However statistics do show that people who live under the poverty line and aboriginals are more often involved with violence during their lives. Sad but true.

 

Squamish has both. Squamish, as some of you may know, is a relatively poor place that relies heavily on logging for its economic health. The us softwood duties and lower world prices for lumber have not helped. as well, squamish is home to many aboriginal people

 

So squamish is a real place with real people. Shannon et al learned that first hand, unfortunately, but thank goodness you are all okay. If you want to climb in a perfect place, squamish ain't it (and it rains too!). But it's pretty darn close. If you want to climb in a place where the climbing is amazing, the people are (usually) very friendly and your dollars make a difference (and you don't mind a rain day now and then and now), then squishizit.

 

to those who feel that violence is best dealt with violence, please climb elsewhere.

 

Shannon, please keep us posted.

But those who feel that violence is best dealt with with macho posturing, please post here! By all means!

 

And please note it's extra extra manly to threaten retaliation with a gun. Everybody knows that real men bring guns to fist fights! hahaha.gifrolleyes.gifrolleyes.gifrolleyes.gif

This is Shannon, again, & now I have my own access. If anyone has any info. regarding the attack on my friends & me, please let me know ASAP! I also wanted to let everyone know that I spoke w/ & faxed the U.S. Attorney General today. He is fully aware of what's going on. Furthermore, Jeremy & I are supposed to have an interview w/ KOMO TV tomorrow (wednesday). We feel that it is so important to inform everyone of what's happened. I don't want anyone to have to go through what we went through. It is a frightening & horrific experience. Please pass on to your friends & family to be careful when travelling in the Squamish area. I don't know if those individuals are looking to retaliate against more Americans or not. According to the American Consolate this is a direct violent attack against Americans travelling in that region. We are dealing with the situation and as I've previously mentioned, I will keep everyone posted.

You may choose to roll over when confronted, but I won't just stand there and allow myself to get jumped, or my partner for that matter, without putting up a fight. Is your life so worthless that you won't defend it?

Ditto, Greg. And it don't matter where or what country for that matter. Even though I spray and have a good BS time here I really try to have fun and get along. But don't fuckin try to hurt me, my family(family includes dog) or friends. If this happens its time to step up to the plate and dance.

Each man (or woman) has the inalienable rights to LIFE, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. That includes the right to defend that life in any means possible. If you make a decision NOT to do that, it speaks volumes for the worth you put on your life. Mine, for one, is priceless; it's the only one I've got. Further, those I consider friends and loved ones are priceless to me, as well. Am I the only one who thinks this way?

Not at all. I feel and think very much the same way.

greg- i think everyone agrees with you on the self preservation thing what people might take exception to is your tone which seems to advocate violence as a means of controlling juevenile delinquency. we'd rather see these punks spend some really boring time in reform school than having bullets flying at all hours at the local campground. flying bullets don't always find their mark on the appropriately guilty parties (collateral damage if you will). and then there's the noise.

Can't take guns into Canada, numbnuts. I am pretty low-key when I'm out and about, as friends will attest. I don't look for trouble. However, when it comes there's no point in fighting fair. If they come to dance, then they get what they deserve; juvenile or not. Apparently they are old enough to make the decision to prey on strangers. They get no sympathy from me.

It's time for some Confederate Air Force low-level airstrikes on Squish. I'll lead the campaign.
