‘Mother Canada’ plans should wait
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.
