Park Canada is proposing to triple Rideau Canal fees for 2013
The Ottawa Citizen is reporting that Park Canada is proposing a new fee structure for the Rideau Canal that would see fees for using the canal go up almost 300%. For example, the cost of traveling the length of the canal for a 20 foot boat would go up from $93 to $360. For a 40 foot boat, the cost would go up from $186 to $720.
The proposed fee structure would make use of a complex new ticket system and would do away with passes.
