Rideau Mayors angry at Parks Canada

An article in the Ottawa Sun this week shows that even the mayors of all the towns along the Rideau Canal are angry with Parks Canada's proposed fees. They know the nascent Rideau Canal tourist industry will be ruined by it. Mayors angered over skyrocketing canal fees - Ottawa Sun, Jan.27, 2013

I am hoping the Canadian Government will realize heritage canals don't belong under the Environment Minister. They can't possibly maintain a World Heritage Site with "user pay". The canals cannot bear the entire burden of budget cuts to Parks Canada. I propose they increasing national park tent camping to $100 - would people vote for the government that did that?  Related posts:
