The Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society(CPAWS) launched a Fight for Your Parks to stop commercial development in Banff and Jasper National Parks
Recent commercial projects in Banff and Jasper National Parks have privatized public spaces and threatened the very framework that controls development in our parks.
The Glacier Skywalk and the proposed new accommodation at Maligne Lake in Jasper National Park both convert public space for private gain. The approval of the massive expansion of the Lake Louise ski hill involves releasing new land, which is currently designated as protected wilderness, for commercial development in a much-loved backcountry area.
Canada’s national parks belong to all Canadians. It’s up to all of us to protect the natural values our parks are intended to protect, and to pass them on unimpaired to future generations.
