British Columbia's provincial parks cover 13.5 million hectares - providing vital refuge for wildlife, protection against climate change, and an opportunity for people to reconnect with nature. But right now, this public legacy is in trouble

There is a First Nations proverb that says we don't inherit the land from our ancestors, but rather we borrow it from our children and grandchildren. Having borrowed from our children and grandchildren, it is vital that the land be returned in the same or better condition than when we borrowed it. But how do we do that?

To do that, we must:

1) Double BC Parks’ operational budget, as recommended by the government-appointed Park Legacy Panel;
2) Fully implement the Auditor General’s recommendations to protect the ecological integrity of our park system;
3) Reinstate park interpretive programs;
4) Significantly increase the number of park rangers.

Your government has argued that it doesn’t have the money to increase the BC Parks’ budget. But amazingly enough, between 2006 and 2010 the provincial government provided roughly one billion dollars in subsidies to oil and gas corporations. Further, we cannot allow our parks and wilderness areas to be sullied by Enbridge and Kinder Morgan and their ilk. Our coastal waters, rainforests and all the wildlife cannot be allowed to be bought and paid for by big oil.

Please do the right thing by restoring BC's provincial parks without delay.

Yours truly

Lynn Squance,
