'Pass recreation in great danger W G1SEG McINTYUE Staff Writer CALGARY Albcrlans are "going to have to move fast" to prevent wide-spread destruo tion of recreational land in the Crowsnesi Pass area, says Chris Dimkley, president of Hie Banff Calgary chapter of Ihc National Provincial Parks As- sociation of Canada. Mr. Dunkley said in an inter- view that coal leases have al- ready been issued for strip] mining in the Rocky Mountain foothills area running north j from Coleman. "But terms of the leases arc i still being setllcd, so it's not' loo late to do something." Mr. Dunkley said slrip min- i ing has already mined recrea- tional land in the Elk River area over the B.C. border, at Kaiser Resources operations north of Spanvood. aterton parks expert says CALGARY (Staff) Expan- sion of Walerlon Lakes Nation- al Park should be considered to relieve overcrowding o f parks in Alberta, says Ron Mails, re- gional director of the National and Historic Parks Branch of Uie Government o[ Canada. Because of ils smaller size, Wafcrton in the southwest cor- ner of the province is more crowded than the more popular Banff and Jasper nat i o n a 1 parks, Mr. Mails said in an in- terview alter an address to a tourist conference here. He said the federal parks branch is currently conducting a survey of parkland to deter- mine which areas arc not ade- quately represented in the na- tional parks system. In an address to 300 people in the tourist industry, he said some parks are already facing "serious overcrowding." j "Once we thought we j lots of space, now we're not so j sure." He said the day is coming soon when parks in Canada will j have to limit the number of i people who can be admitted during the day. Limitations on numbers of people have already been plac- ed on parks in the United States, he said. The government has taken the stand that no more roads should be built in Banff and Jasper parks. He said empha- sis will be placed instead, on upgrading the existing roads in these parks. He told tourist officials to stop promoting parks here "in scenes of glowing color" and j instead inform visitors of the lineups, delays and shortages of accomodation they will fate during peak periods. The numbers of people using Jasper, for example, h a v e i tripled in the last six years, he said. The national parks branch is well on its way toward the ob- jective of 40 to 50 new parks in Canda by the turn of the cen- tury, he said. The objective was set by the federal minister in charge of parks, Jean Chre- tien. In a speech to an Alberta government sponsored tourist conference here, Mr. Dunkley salt! tin! national provincial parks association has written to ff-fleni! minister for parks, Jean Chretien; Alberta Pre- mier JVu.-r Loughccd and min- ister responsible for tourism Bob Dowling asking that com- j mc'cial development in parks j be limited. Increasing population and af- i finance in Canada and the Unit- i cd States is causing "trcmen- dous pressure" on the ecology I nf parks in this country, h e To take the pressure oif j major parks, the government I should be encouraging develop- ment of other forms of recrea- i lional facilities. lie .said, i Mr. Dunkley said the foot- hills region following the fores- try trunk road from Uie Cole- man area all the way north to the .It'ipper Edmonton high- wny li.'is the potential for a wider diversity of recreational uses than parks which are re- stricted by parks regulations.
