This is good news. And it’s because so many of you spoke out. You told @jkenney and the UCP that Alberta’s parks belong to all of us and they should not be for sale. But there’s more work ahead. Keep up the pressure, friends. ✊ #ableg #DefendABParks https://t.co/siv415lz1g

Alberta Parks remain accessible, but the public is prohibited from using Alberta Parks facilities, including toilets, picnic areas & warm-up shelters. This is the same approach the federal gov is taking with national parks. Please practice appropriate social distancing in parks. https://t.co/ISDp2Z7lsw PaddleAlberta photo
