By Walter Neufeld. Taxpayers are not being asked whether they are ok with funding Wi-Fi and wireless phone service access in Canadian Parks to service resource extraction industry: parks currently without such service make efficient resource extraction difficult or impossible.
Instead, Parks Canada,at the behest of the Harper government, is hiding the real purpose of that Wi-Fi/Phone plan by marketing a claim that it’s for ” …visitors [who] want to be able to stay in touch with work, friends and family, stay up to date on the news and connect with social media.”
Yeah right. http://natpo.st/1fKyDiZ
