Decision allowing ski hill redevelopment in Riding Mountain NP another step backwards in park protec


Ottawa — Earlier today, Parks Canada announced an amendment to the Riding Mountain National Park management plan allowing potential redevelopment of the long-closed Mount Agassiz Ski area. CPAWS is deeply concerned that this decision is yet another sign that the Agency is moving away from protecting ecological integrity as their first priority for park management. Today’s announcement reverses Parks Canada’s previous commitment to remove the aging infrastructure from the bankrupt ski hill and restore the area’s ecosystem. – News Release
