Here is an article about a conflict with the recreation industry and the public recreation resource in Juan de Fuca Park: http://www.timescolonist.com/travel/Dev ... story.html There is a similar problem with the recreation industry in Strathcona Park. There is currently a Park Use Permit application by a recreation industry outfit trying to build exclusive use infrastructure in Strathcona Park. This will open the door to building exclusive use infrastructure such as campsites and cabins in all of our parks. http://www.cwrapplication.com/ The park act was changed to accommodate private infrastructure in 2007. http://www.bclaws.ca/EPLibraries/bclaws ... 0_96344_01 The BC government isn’t managing our Parks according to the principles of public trust doctrine for the public benefit. It doesn't matter the party; NDP, Liberal, or whatnot, our government has a poor record of managing Parks for the public benefit. If you care about your Provincial Parks the time to get involved is now. Write your MLA. Get involved with groups that support public recreation. If we can't get this arrogant govenment of the day to listen then, as is suggested in the article about Juan de Fuca Park, perhaps we should turn all of BC Parks into National Parks for management at the national level.
