Maintain the historical integrity of the Motherwell N.H.S

    1. Petition by

      Bryan Roy

The people at Parks Canada who are in charge of the budget for The MOTHERWELL HOMESTEAD N.H.S are planning on moving to self guided tours next year due to budget cuts. There are plans on eliminating the working horse program, where the land is farmed with horse drawn equipment the way it was done 100 years ago. This is the way we built this country, and without programs like this, all the effort and hardwork that was put forth by our predecessors could very easily be taken for granted and forgotten. These programs, and the people who run them, serve not only as a reminder of past years/struggles, but also as motivation and education for many generations to come.

      Please don't cut funding to the Motherwell. This is the best way for children to learn.

      The park is important because it is one of a kind and there is no other place like it in Saskatchewan.

      Many times when i was young we would drive to the Motherwell and take in everything it had to offer. Its an awesome learning experience for people that dont know about the life back in 1900's. I would hate to see it gone before I have a chance to take my future child to visit.
