The plan was to sell off Springwater Provincial Park for residential development when it was made inactive in 2012.
That’s what the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry, MNRF wanted to do in 2012. (rationale) The MNRF is the ONLY ministry that can sell crown land.
Same plan, different redeemed wasteland.
BTW: who do you think ensured the quality of the trees that were planted in the 192 ha of Springwater Park and the 32,000 acres of Simce County forests?
