Campgrounds Question Plans For More
Campground owners in Shediac, New Brunswick, are questioning why the town is even considering a proposal by local legislator Victor Boudreau to build a 750-site campground, CBC News reported.
Just 18 months ago, the town was trying to get rid of campgrounds, said Dave Maltais, owner of Camping Oceanic.
The town council "had passed a motion basically saying they didn't want any additional campgrounds, not even the existing campgrounds to add more sites," said Maltais.
"Their thinking at that time was that there was sufficient sites in the area, that they didn't want more sites added," he said.
Shediac already has more than 1,000 sites.
Boudreau and Michel Boudreau want to turn the land between the provincial park and the road to Pointe de Chene into a campground for big motorhomes.
With 750 sites, it would be the largest campground in the region.
