BC Parks and SCRD get a letter from West Coast Environmental Law about infrastructure expansion at Chapman Lake
"We write ... to enquire about the legal basis for a proposal to expand water infrastructure into Tetrahedron Provincial Park. It is our position that the proposed water infrastructure – which apparently would include blasting and trench building to build a permanent pipeline through the park – cannot be accomplished under BC’s existing protected areas legislation and is therefore illegal."
