‘Mother Canada’ plans should wait

Cape Breton Post - - EDITORIAL -

There is a real pos­si­bil­ity that Parks Canada will again break the rules gov­ern­ing the use of the Cape Bre­ton High­lands Na­tional Park for pri­vate en­ter­prise.

With lit­tle time left be­fore the next fed­eral elec­tion they may at­tempt in the mid­dle of the night to go to Green Cove and start the ground work.

This would be an ill-ad­vised move on their part. There may well be a new gov­ern­ment in place soon and that would mean the end of this pro­ject.

This would be the worst pos­si­ble night­mare for the peo­ple north of Cape Smokey. No mon­u­ment and the beau­ti­ful nat­u­ral site of Green Cove de­stroyed. Any move by Parks Canada must wait un­til af­ter the elec­tion.
