This is important! Please read through the entire thing. NEWSCHOOLERS; RCR does not care about your safety and well being. They care only about financial and legal security. Their removal of manmade jumps was not an attempt at taking the “moral high ground”; this is something that does not exist to them. They proved this on January 2nd of this year at Lake Louise in Banff National park. I will not use names in this for the sake of the person involved and his family, but those of you who know him will certainly recognize who it is.
After a day of skiing, this person, a 23 year old man with only one course to complete for his university degree, had a heart attack in the Lake Louise day lodge washrooms. He was found shortly, unconscious. CPR was performed on him for 30 minutes before the ambulance arrived. When EMS arrived, it was decided that he needed to be airlifted by STARS rescue helicopter. He is now in a coma in the intensive care unit.
Now there are two problems with the story above. Why was a normal ambulance called in the first place? Why wasn’t STARS called immediately? Second, and the major point of this post, is this; after even just 5 minutes of CPR, why was he not defibrillated? Simple; because it is not mandatory, Lake Louise does not have a defibrillator.
That’s right; a young man is now in a coma that he will be lucky to live through because RCR was too damn cheap to buy a simple, inexpensive piece of equipment that even YMCA swimming pools have. If he lives, he may be a vegetable; he will almost certainly have some brain damage, and at a minimum will likely have to learn everything he has learned over again. How to move, talk, eat, walk….. Ski.
RCR, thank you for taking your moral high ground and shitting all over it just to show us what your deal really is. We appreciate the knowledge that you really are the scum you appear to be.
Please pray for the family and their son. They’re going to need it.
