Proposed Canal Fees - 7 days left to comment

"Parks Canada will continue to address concerns and will endeavour to resolve user fee complaints that arose during the public consultation period. Canadians now have until 11:59 PM (EDT) March 13, 2013 to submit a complaint as per the User Fees Act."

A document they sent also said: "Only fully completed forms received by 11:59 PM (EDT) April 12th, 2013 to
will be accepted by Parks Canada as a formal application."

So if you are not happy with the high fees proposed for mooring and locking in Canada's heritage canals, you have a very short time left to contact the government. Email Parks Canada at:

Everyone should complain about the reduced canal locking service as well, since they will shrink the local economy as much as high fees or a shorter season. Government propaganda means little. Tourism growth requires making the visitor experience better, more convenient, or cheaper.
