KEJIMKUJIK NATIONAL PARK
As part of Parks Canada's mandate, "preservation and presentation" was a major challenge for management at Kejimkujik National Park. A proposed change in fiscal policy to make National Parks in Canada more revenue dependent was cause for concern and potential conflict for the management, visitors and ecologists at the "Keji" Park in southwestern Nova Scotia. Taking a business approach and attracting more visitors meant more revenues; however, more visitors also spelled danger for the protected endangered Blanding Turtles and other threatened species who resided within the Park. Moreover, with a huge federal deficit, could the taxpayer afford to operate and maintain Canada's National Parks? Supplementary video available.
