Mark Parent back when he was a Tory minister.
Earlier this year, the province officially designated 1,350 hectares west of Bayers Lake Industrial Park as the Blue Mountain-Birch Cove Lakes Wilderness. The designation capped a two-year effort that began under former minister of the environment Mark Parent.
But last month, Halifax mayor Peter Kelly told the CBC that he won't agree to the city buying about 400 hectares of privately owned land in the area, even though the land is designated in the HRM regional plan as wilderness park.
Kelly's comments have enraged Parent.
