Strong Response To Park Study Means Changes

Changes to the Parks Act introduced today will aid with the long-term protection of provincially-owned parks, according to Culture Minister Trevor Holder.

The changes include strengthening conservation efforts, requiring better resource management, prohibiting prospecting, mining and shale extraction inside parks, and addressing accessibility issues.

The changes stem from the results of an online survey conducted in 2013 which almost 2,500 people filled out.
