Can Markets Save Canada’s National Parks?

Green and LeRoy offer a comprehensive view of, in their view, how the politics of park management have prevented Parks Canada from considering the full range of policy options that could help secure a sustainable future for Canada’s national parks. Using statistical analysis they show that although the size of Canada’s protected areas has grown dramatically, the government has used new parks to fuel economic development and reward political interests. They also point out that the federal government has failed to protect Canada’s heritage sites and buildings.
