Petition to the House of Commons
    1. Gatineau Park is one of the most visited parks in Canada;
    2. Gatineau Park is home to close to 90 endangered plant and 50 endangered animal species;
    3. The boundaries of Gatineau Park, which belongs to all Canadians, are not inscribed in an act of Parliament;
    4. Sections of Gatineau Park can be removed, developed, or disposed of without parliamentary authorization; and
    5. Gatineau Park managers lack the basic authority required for protecting the park's natural resources.
    We, the undersigned, residents of Canada, call upon the House of Commons to amend the National Capital Act to grant Gatineau Park the legal protection required to ensure its preservation for future generations.
