pThe inability to merge heritage, history, and reality, from mind space to another, is an indicator of an lack of flow of mutual respects.

I am from the East Escarpment of Riding Mountain, and own lands that were pristine until the concept of public entry dismissed the constitutional right of ownership. Generations of protection and preservation have now left staged damages, dead zones, ripped riparian zones.
Trails became a nightmare.

The article sans ski is offensive. The Agassiz ski hill area is presently being damaged due to a lack of controls. There is no mention of people. No mention of communities. No mention of history and tradition. No mention of economy, no mention of other ski hills in other National Parks. It is an isolated, self serving, commentary.
