Cumulatively, the provisional plans envisage projects spread over about 15 years involving about million which will virtually achieve the ultimate level of development the ex- perts think the four parks can absorb without detriment. The set of proposals, avail- able from the Queen's Printer, lays out the roads, lifts, park- ing, interpretation centres, foot paths, shelters, tourist facili- ties, skiing and snowmobile trails, swimming and boating and all other facilities which cculd be developed as an inte- grated park program. number of campsites, for issues aiiu lutu 3 iic j -j-flg nuniDer 01 CampSllcs, lor to bring out what I instance, wouid be almost doub- reallv wfint Sflid The clashes are expected from j led to units over the corn- competing interests such as I bined area with additions and Oil) and its request to establish Village Lake Louise as a million recreational village about the size of Banff. But these hearings will not deal with the ticklish problem of the existing Banff and Jasper townsites. They will be covered by separate hearings, probably a year later. Village Lake Louise is includ- ed in the April hearings be- cause if it goes ahead the de- partment will ensure its devel- opment as an integral part of the parks environment rather than allow it to become the urban sprawl that has become such a problem in the un- planned Banff and Jasper com- munities. Now, having done the prelim- inary planning, the department wants to know what the people think about the general outline of its intentions as well as par- ticular items. Based on previous experience, it will heai- not only from the logging executive who will argue for multiple use but also from his hiking minded steno as individuals and also as mem- bers of various recreational. organizations. treme positions with those who wanted the park left virtually untouched on one side and on the other those who wanted a lot of development like swim- ming pools, tennis courts, en- tertainment centre and a full network of roads to handle large crowds. we also got some solid suggestions on a middle course conservationist or commercial between these two extremes." Did the public bearing carry The first public hearing on a mfurencing tne provisional master was finalized Development plan for held last April in Halifax in- volving one of the smallest and newest national parks, Kejim- kujik, in the Nova Scotia in- terior lake country. "We got scores of briefs on it and the hearing mushroomed until there were 140 people filling the meeting room, Le- saux recalled. "There was a tremendous turnout of ideas and opinions as well as submissions but gen- Kejimkujik? "You said Lesaux. "There were two very import- ant changes made as a result of the hearing.

Tt would have cost about mil- lion but the overwhelming re- sponse was negative. was known what this might do to the ecology and the wildlife and so on. So the minister agreed to the obvious wishes and ordered that road cut out of the plans. Similarly, a boat launching facility was moved." By 1973, the department hopes to have drawn up provi- sional master plans and held public hearings for every one of the parks in the national system. (After the April hearings, for example, it intends to hold hearings at Prince Albert, Sas- katchewan, and in Quebec this summer to deal with newly- established parks. The new sea- shore park on the west coast of Vancouver Island will go through this process about a year from now.) Next year, while the individu- al hearings are still going on, the department plans to con- vene a general hearing on the whole system of national parks and what purposes and direc- tions the Canadian public wants met. Along with the underlying philosophy of parks, the propor- tion of wilderness to Intensive recreational areas, multi-pur- pose or exclusive reservation and other basic questions, the national hearings likely will give a good indkatkm of how many parks the public feels should be created to preserve this heritage for posterity.
