Alberta outdoor stores pen letter to government to reverse parks decision

Three well known Alberta outdoor stores have written a letter to the UCP government, urging Premier Jason Kenney and Environment Minister Jason Nixon to reverse the decision to close or partially close 20 Alberta parks.

The general managers from Campers Village and Track ‘N Trail and the president of The Fishin’ Hole issued the letter, saying the three believe in the “intrinsic natural value of Alberta’s provincial parks and natural spaces.” (Read the full letter below)
