Creature of the Black Tusk

Greed, Avarice, Venality. Lesser traits of the human condition. The founder outdoor clubs who fought to create Garibaldi Provincial Park had higher motives.

Mountaineering Club with more than 800 members has cited the actions of Cypress Mountain Resort in closing the backcountry access corridor to Howe Sound Crest Trail as harmful to public safety.

Here is the text of the letter the BCMC recently wrote to Mr. Jim Standen, Assistant Deputy Minister, BC Parks and Conservation Officer Division.
