According to a story by Matt Mclure in the Calgary Herald the province of Alberta is spending $18 million to rebuild the Kananaskis Country Golf Course that was heavily-damaged by last year’s flooding.
As Mclure reported, while some environmental groups have questioned the wisdom of restoring the 36-hole facility in the floodplain of a creek that is home to the endangered cutthroat trout, the Conservative government said in a media release that the investment is important to the area’s tourism industry.
“We get away to Kananaskis to have fun and connect with nature and so do people from around the world,” Tourism and Parks Minister Richard Starke said in the release.
