Good effort. Hmmm, free access could be why we can't have nice things. I'd be open to fees if it helps pay for something like, say, more rangers.
That was one of the things I said: put parking fees in and lotteries on popular locations, sure, that's standard practice anywhere with this much activity - but only if they're being used to actually fund the parks rather than vanishing into general revenue, and not used as an excuse to cut / stagnate the parks budget. We used to have parking fees for years, after all, and look at how many rangers we have now and what the state of maintenance is.
We'd need a whole lot more rangers than 2 to actually enforce regulation on somewhere like Garibaldi or Joffre.
And that was an excellent post, Dru, well stated.
