I just got the following notice about the plan to build a glass-bottomed viewing platform over the Athabasca Icefields. Other than the scenic destruction and the impact on the environment, this will restrict access to the surrounding mountains. If you want to limit commercial operations in the national parks, and if you care about keeping them open to everyone, please send your comments to the Parks Superintendent.
