Improving accessibility to Yukon campgrounds

On Thursday, November 26 2015 Yukon NDP MLA Lois Moorcroft tabled the following motion in the Yukon legislature. The motion seeks to make accessibility a focus while the government makes planned upgrades to a number of Yukon campgrounds.

THAT this House urges the Government of Yukon to improve opportunities for camping for persons with disabilities by:

(1) ensuring accessibility in the design and development of future Yukon campgrounds, campground facilities and campsites; and

(2) building new accessible campsites, outhouses and trails during upgrades and repairs to existing Yukon campgrounds and campground facilities, including the work proposed at the Conrad, Marsh Lake, Wolf Creek and Twin Lakes campgrounds.
