So Terry Lake agrees that it is OK to evict people from a first-come first-served provincial park campsite.
These sites are put there for everyone to enjoy and no one should be evicted unless you are not following the proper laws. These seniors could very well be on their last camp, as we all know as sad as it is one’s health is always in question when getting of age.
I am sure many of these seniors look forward to camping with their friends this one time of the year and perhaps a few of them hoping they all make it again next year, however that may not be the case.
So here is the government and a select few of First Nations saying it is OK to evict these people from a public funded camp site to allow a select group of people to camp for a weekend, at a Provincial site that does not take reservations.
I have nothing against First Nations, or First Nations camping at Juniper beach, or any other camp site, but I do have a problem when people think it is OK to evict campers to allow other campers in a Provincial site.
Editor’s note: Environment Minister Terry Lake said Thursday no one will be forced to leave the campground, although campers will be encouraged to seek new sites at other provincial parks nearby.
