He added that the web­site for book­ing reser­va­tions at pro­vin­cial parks ac­tu­ally crashed last year be­cause of the de­mand but that he doesn’t be­lieve that de­mand is re­flected at El­len­wood be­cause of the lack of power to sites.

“That’s a sim­ple in­fra­struc­ture in­vest­ment that the prov­ince could make that would add to some of the ca­pac­ity is­sues we have in the sum­mer and also just help­ing peo­ple to camp and stay longer.

False Har­bour in Cape Forchu, Yarmouth County, is a beau­ti­ful beach but Nova Sco­tia Tourism does not rec­om­mend it to visi­tors. It’s one of many in the re­gion with­out proper park­ing, sig­nage and fa­cil­i­ties.

MacKen­zie says that although there are other beau­ti­ful beaches in the area, like John’s Cove and False Har­bour on the drive to the Cape Forchu Light­house, Tourism Nova Sco­tia will not rec­om­mend them to visi­tors be­cause they don’t have proper park­ing, sig­nage and bath­room fa­cil­i­ties.

“They want a cer­tain level of qual­ity,” he said.

Some of the trails in the re­gion, like Che­bogue Mead­ows, need work as well, he says.

“We have to con­tinue to push with our rep­re­sen­ta­tives and tell them we want that in­vest­ment here.

Speak to your MLA and tell him it’s a pri­or­ity,” he told coun­cil.
