Glacier Park Lodge is an eyesore

Resident wants something done about the shuttered lodge at Rogers Pass.

Editor,

Re: Glacier Park Lodge future awaits end of legal battle, News, Nov. 20.

Parks Canada and the B.C. Government should be totally ashamed of the condition of Glacier Park Lodge in Rogers Pass! Whoever is in charge should make settlements, bulldoze this mess and create a road-side picnic spot, washroom facility and parks interpretation centre for the travelling public.

Can you imagine the opinion of any of the thousands of tourist who travel through this passage to the Rockies – and how many friends they discuss this with when they get home? Can you imagine anything in such a condition in Glacier or Yellowstone Park in the USA ? Or even in an Alberta park? Not likely !

Someone please fix this mess soon and while you are at it fix the road.

Garth Elrick,

Revelstoke, B.C.
