Campground Proposal Response Split
Campground owners in Shediac, New Brunswick, are upset about potentially losing business after a local legislator publicized plans to build a new megasite in the area, Global News of Canada reported.
Local legislator Victor Boudreau and his business partner have proposed to build a new 750-site campground in the heart of cottage county, even though there are eight others already operating in the region.
Despite the fears of those already set up, some business owners and residents in the small tourist town say growth is good.
Joanna Nhri, whose family runs Jack’s Pizza pizza in Shediac, says they would welcome the idea of another campground.
“It’s a good thing for us,” she said. “More tourists, more people, more business.”
But some campground owners in the region fear there just isn’t enough business to support another campground, especially one with 750 extra sites.
Those owners plan to meet behind closed doors and will form a committee to have a collective voice against the issue.
