  • The problem with 'free' parks

    The onset of a global recession has been met by a flourish of creative politics and policy from the bizarre (a wax museum to be built in California as part of the Obama stimulus package) to the verbose (Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd's 7,000-word essay on economics), to the whimsical.

    Manitoba's recent initiative to remove user fees from provincial parks would be an example of the latter, but it is also a case study in bad public policy and of a broader malaise in Manitoba politics.
