Keep the Parks What they Are — Parks

Karl Stevenson of the Vancouver Sun wrote a brief opinion piece on the proposal to permit business enterprises to operate within provincial park boundaries.

I agree with Karl.  I also agree with Bill Bryson.  In his book A Walk in the Woods he explains how America’s parkland is always complaining of being under funded.  It would mean that trails cannot be maintained and visitor facilities may lack some conveniences.

But he and I also worry about overfunding the parks.  If they had too much money I would hate to see the number of building projects that would be launched across Yosemite or Glacier or provincial parks like Garibaldi.  I fear for large, modern parking garages and visitor centers and new roads.
