Target: Prime Minister of Canada
Sponsored by: Kathy Perrier
Kejimkujik National Park & Historic Site has been affected by budget cuts put forth by our Prime Minister, Stephen Harper.

After Thanksgiving weekend there will be no camping (backcountry or general campground) until May 2013.

Even worse, this winter the main road will not be plowed past the Visitor Information Center.

The gates will not be closed, and we are certainly welcome, however the only option will be to ski or hike on the main road.

There will be no facilities other than outhouses open during the winter months.

This is not acceptable.

This park and historic site is very important to our culture, the area, and province and promote healthy living and the great outdoors.

These cutbacks are deplorable. I hope you will take the time to sign this petition that will be forwarded to the PMO.

I also encourage you to write your MLA and local papers.

Hopefully together we can ensure this doesn’t happen again next year!

Daniel J Towsey says, That is horrible to close that from the people..Everyone needs access to our natural roots..

Please read this experience I had there when I was 16 and went out into the wilderness for the first time in my life. It changed my life for ever.
