    Default Parks Canada fighting everyone?

    What in the fuck is happening at Parks Canada these days? Seems like they a having messy public disputes with every ski hill, and now some 82-year old tea house operator.

    Seems like they want to push everyone out. Can anyone explain?

    The lady runs a business for profit and hasn’t been paying her rent. Lock her out.

    Ordinarily I'd just blame JT and call a day. But it seems like something more. Something more systematic and possibly longer term. But that's just guessing.

    They fucked all of their own Rangers over severely within the last 5-10 years. Slashed their numbers and demoted most of them because some of them wanted to carry firearms for safety in isolated wilderness. They sound like a pretty fucked organization. I imagine only 99% of their top brass are Quebecers, so there's that... They seem to be very NOT immune to corruption. You have to be French as fuck to do so much as sell day passes from a ticket booth.

    With the ski hill, the group leasing the land wanted to dictate construction on additional land. The landowners told them no, and presented the option required to get a renewed lease.

    With the chalet, the person leasing the chalet is apparently not paying their rent, so the representatives of the owners locked them out.


    The disputes are messy because Corbella (ski hill story) is just a bootlicker and was trying to stir things up with an anti-Trudeau angle, and this one is Postmedia trying to gain clicks for a special interest story because the operator is a nice, long-tenured old lady and the owner is the big, bad federal government so it's your typical underdog angle.

    Haven't there been disputes with all the ski hills? I'm sure I've seen something with Norquay and Louise in addition to the sunshine story.

    I think small disputes that have been resolved other than Sunshine.

    Semi-related, I was in a giant line up at the Banff park pass gates and after 30 mins they just started waving everyone through and all of a sudden nobody had to pay anymore - anyone know why they do that? Never seen them just stop charging for passes before on a whim.

    Louise cut down protected trees they weren’t supposed to and got fined for, but that’s the only dispute with them I know off hand.

    "“They’re trying to run me out. They implied I was too old to run it,” said Drummond."

    Thats a little different angle. Is she not there as much as she used to/ or needs to be? What things is she overlooking?

    Paying her lease for the last 5 years...

    The only people that have issue with parks seem to forget that they don’t own the property nor do they make the rules. Any business in Calgary that didn’t pay their landlord for 1 year let alone 5 would have been booted, history or not. Parks just makes better headlines
