Campground Project Hearing Draws A Crowd (1/16/2019)
Story by Woodall's Campground Management
It was a full house at the Parkland County Center on Monday (Jan. 14) In Alberta as aboutÂ 80 peopleÂ attended an appeal hearing for the controversial campground proposed for the north shore of Wabamun Lake, according to CBC News.
The application byÂ Samco DevelopmentsÂ to build a seasonal campground, whichÂ would include 300 sites for RVs on a 57-hectare (140 acre) site west of Edmonton, was previously denied in November by the county.
During several hours of presentations on Monday, in which Samco is hoping to overturn that ruling, it was clear that emotions about the project continue to run high.
"This proposed development impacts more than meets the eye," Donny Rain,Â manager for the Paul First Nation Industry Relations Corp.,Â told CBC News. "I am here because there is no recognition of Paul First Nation as rights holders. There is no recognition of the treaty relationship between Paul Band and the Crown, of which the province and counties are members."
