The United Conservative government is on the defensive after introducing cuts and closures to the provincial parks system, and plenty of people, agencies and park users lined up to push back.

The government announced it would remove 164 sites from the park system it manages in a Saturday release to news media.

It cited stats from 2018-19 indicating that fees generated $33 million yet it cost $86 million to run.
