Canada: Minister floats reversal of operating-hour cuts at NPs; hints at fees for nearby businesses
Businesses located near national parks, historic sites and canals run by Parks Canada could be asked to pay fees to help offset upkeep and operating costs.
Environment Minister Peter Kent openly talked about the potential fees this week, while also suggesting that a plan to cut the operating hours of those sites – in some cases by half – could be reversed or scaled back.
