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.

For the report in the Ottawa Citizen, go to:
