Starting in a few weeks, visitors to a popular Metro Vancouver parks will need to shell out $2 per hour for parking.

This is a blatant cash grab done in the name of increased demand during a pandemic. 

No family should need to pay to go hiking in the regional park around Sasamat Lake/White Pine Beach. No one should have to pay $48 a day to park in a regional park that their taxes already pay for. If you want to fish early in the morning when few people are around, you should not need to pay to do so. 

If the parking lot is full, you can't go. Everyone that lives nearby knows this and adjusts accordingly. They come early to hike or bring their family for a nice day at the beach. 

This region is already expensive and its residences already pay taxes that more than pay for the park .

We need to petition Metro Vancouver to stop this wrong-headed move to tax the park and charge families more.
