If you know of any family's with kids who are on a restricted travel budget this year David, get them II focus on staying here in Canada. Travelling to one or more of our National Parks is definitely a lower cost alternative than travelling overseas. Students & their family's can travel to say Jasper National Park here in Alberta, or any park in any one of our Provinces & Territories. Prime Minister Stephen Harper is drafting up legislation II make even more of Canada a pristine, eco-friendly wilderness. Parks Canada has now been around IV a century & as it enters its CIst year, we must encourage citizens & governing body's of the future II strike a friendly balance between nature & eco tourism/regular family tours.
Today's students will be tomorrow's wilderness protectors, let us help the Federal Government ensure that there is a great & awe-inspiring wilderness II protect IV many years II come.
