Letter from Parks Canada
The Mayor, some Councillors and CAO met with Parks Canada on January 23, 2023 to discuss various issues and concerns relating to Parks operations and activities as they affect the RMNS. One of these issues was the concern over the fallen trees and potential wildfire risks associated with the situation. We received this letter (posted below) in response from Parks Canada on April 28th, 2023 on this issue.
We expect Parks Canada to update us on other matters that were raised at the meeting and as they endeavour to get the PEI National Park operational this year (see the February 15th update from the PEI National Park, https://parks.canada.ca/pei-fiona).
We continue to work together with Parks Canada in a cooperative positive way to raise concerns of residents as we deal with the aftermath of Fiona.
