That’s a nice prediction, but we still need to be loud about it.
Thanks for the important links. Vive la resistance!
Keep them coming. Power to the people.
Imho the grooming cancellation was just a distraction from the “sale” part of the announcement that was quietly removed from the website later. Those 164 sites listed for “partnership” is their main goal. I am guessing some of those sites were “promised” to “partners” who helped UPC to get back in power. Time to repay…
I think you’re right, Kenney supporter may receive the goose that laid the golden egg, partnership (an opportunity to build commercial ventures in our parks.
Risto posted this yesterday, but in case it got lost: xc-specific petition: https://secure.avaaz.org/en/community_petitions/minister_of_environment_jason_nixon_keep_trail_grooming_and_track_setting_alive_in_kananaskis
Its not xc specific, but these are events regarding the overall parks changes:

YYC Townhall (limited seats): https://m.facebook.com/events/670529613694476
I’m unclear if there would be value in a xc ski-specific townhall – maybe to discuss options if our dear government doesn’t retract their $200k cut…?
