WINNIPEG - The Manitoba government is promising to upgrade provincial parks due to growing demand.
The 10 year, $110 million plan includes 45 new yurts, structures with a hard roof, lighting, furniture and power.
Other planned improvements include adding electrical service to campsites in several parks, building washrooms in some remote parks and new water treatment plants in places where potable water is in short supply.
The province and Manitoba General Employees' Union both say more campsites and yurts are a good start but staff shortages, caused in part by low pay, are a problem.
