New report highlights major commercial development threat to Canada’s national parks

From the CPAWS Northern Alberta Chapter website:

Report Thumbnail

A new report released today by the Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society (CPAWS) finds that Canada’s national parks are under serious threat from growing commercial development pressures, particularly in Banff and Jasper.

The report describes a list of recent developments that, together, threaten the natural values national parks are intended to protect. These include the recent rushed approval of a massive expansion of the Lake Louise Ski Resort in Banff, construction of the Glacier Skywalk and a proposed Maligne Lake resort development in Jasper, and a proposal to build a giant seven story statue in Cape Breton Highlands National Park, among others.
