 This is a TV news story about a B.C. government bill to reconfigure a provincial park in Squamish to allow for a cable car development and how it sets a disturbing precedent, as some environmentalists say.

The Sea to Sky Gondola company has plans to build a gondola system to the top of Mount Habrich, near the world famous Stawamus Chief rock face. But such a commercial project cannot be built within a park, so the boundaries of Stawamus Chief Provincial Park have to be altered to make way for it, which a bill introduced in the B.C. legislature Monday would do. "Who's in charge here," said Gwen Barlee of the Wilderness Committee Tuesday. "Is it the company who wants to put a gondola and seven towers within the provincial park, or is it the B.C. government or B.C. Parks?"
