Distinguishing Banff from the Rest of the World
In two recent posts, I explored the question of whether Parks Canada is genuinely trying to fulfill the needs of Banff’s visitors, or whether it has been hijacked by the business community, which wants to contrive new visitor “needs” in order to make a buck.
Today, a version of this post appeared in The Rocky Mountain Outlook, the local paper of record in the Banff-Bow Valley.
Not surprisingly, a recent editorial in The Calgary Herald, a pro-business newspaper in the corporate capital of Canada, with strong ties to the businesses and lobbyists in Banff, provided a decidedly different opinion.
