Bad undemocratic Federal politicians who will kill your skiing buzz potentially
CTV announced today that the Trudeau Government will slash the Federal budget for National Parks and Historic Sites by a crazy amount of 2/3 next year.
This slashing will likely lead to xc skiing fees and parking fees in Banff and other Parks for the future as I predicted early in the ski season.
Trudeau is anti Parks and totally opposite of his father. The better Trudeau PM of the 1970's and 1980's invested heavily in the Parks trail systems including XC skiing trails. Junior is destroying all that as trails are becoming over grown and eroded like never before.
Write your PM and tell him to stop the cuts. Shift oil subsidies to protecting our Parks so they can remain affordable for the less wealthy. Tax the wealthy more like the old Trudeau PM did to protect our Parks. Charge all road users in Banff the annual or daily park fee. Stop burning and clear cutting of National Park forests and use the funds for these activities to maintain trails. Force residents and businesses in the Parks to protect themselves from fires and end the useless fire protection subsidies that are also harming the environment.
There are many options to maintain Parks budgets. The problem is the Government will increase costs in the Parks for parking or xc skiing in order to push out the less wealthy in favor of the more wealthy. Our Parks should be Universal for all and no increase in any fees for users should be permitted except those driving through for free. Our Parks must not be left for the wealthy only- as our multi millionaire political leaders would like.
If Canadians lived in a real democracy where you have the legalized right to introduce and vote on government bills, you can bet Canadians would not allow Trudeau to slash the National Parks and Historic Sites budget by 2/3. Make way for real democracy and slay our oligarchy political system. This is how our Parks and environment will be better protected for all Canadians.
