February 12, 2012 by staff 

Glacier Walk Project, OTTAWA A controversial glacier walk in Alberta’s Jasper National Park has been given a green light.

Environment Minister Peter Kent announced approval for the project on Thursday.

Brewster Travel Canada plans to build a multimillion-dollar interpretive boardwalk and a glass-bottomed observation point 30 metres over the Sunwapta Valley on the Icefields Parkway north of Banff.

The minister said construction will be largely on an existing parking lot and won’t disrupt the ecology.

He said Parks Canada will monitor the project for any environmental problems.

“The government of Canada’s determination was made following a robust and inclusive review process, which included open houses, extensive consultation with the public and aboriginal stakeholders, and careful consideration of public comments under the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act,” Kent told a news conference in Ottawa.
