It's definitely one of that multitude of opportunistic schemes -- a kind of ultra modern Disneyesque for-profit 'Glacier Discovery Walk’ at the Icefields Parkway in Jasper National Park. It's just the sort of attempt to profiteer from the few public spaces reserved in this country that hits a nerve. There are wildlife concerns, traffic concerns, construction concerns, and on top of all that, the development will restrict public access in a public park! Parks Canada has been forced to delay their opposition by the swell of opposition. Sign the Avaaz petition here. Better yet, phone your MP, if they are the kind that take your calls.
