Parking is free in B.C. provincial parks

    1 of 1 2 of 1

      Remember that time you hiked up Black Tusk, returned to find a parking ticket on your ride, and your sweet day trip was ruined?

      Yeah, me neither. I don’t have a car.

      But I did pay for parking (someone else’s car) the other weekend in Golden Ears Provincial Park, out by Maple Ridge.

      Now, such parking-lot hassles are a thing of the past, at least until a future government reintroduces them.

      That’s because the B.C. Liberal government announced today (May 3) that, effective immediately, parking is free in provincial parks.

      Premier Christy Clark, who promised to rescind the fees during the B.C. Liberal leadership contest, has reportedly said the lost revenue won’t result in a cut to the parks budget.

      Can there be an election not far off? This witch is trying everything to protray a kinder gentler Crusty Clark. I know though that once the election is over and if she is lucky enough to pull a win off, everything will be back to normal. How else can she pay off her sponsors, I mean contrubuters, I mean donators other than with our tax dollars. They are all pigs at the trough in the LIbERal party.
