People in the town of Golden B.C are elated after a meeting with CP Rail about the ongoing dispute over access to the Lower Canyon.
The debate flared up after CP said it would not allow rafting companies to cross at an unmarked crossing in order to get to the lower part of the Kicking Horse River.
On Friday, the company and community stakeholders came up with a solution to allow rafters to continue accessing the lower canyon.
Ron Oszust, mayor of the town says there couldn’t have been a better outcome.
“This is wonderful news and CP Rail has come to the table and been the great corporate citizen and partner that they’ve always been in our community”.
Details of the solution itself have yet to surface however Oszust said that the rafting season will not be delayed.
The town is holding a celebration on April 30th that includes a raft through the town and a barbeque.
Golden is about three hours west of Calgary.
