Proposal for veterans memorial monument in the Cape Breton Highlands National Park

Parks Canada has officially backed out of the controversial “Mother Canada” veterans memorial slated to be built in Cape Breton Highlands National Park. The memorial had been slated to be built at Green Cove, a rare location at which the crustal rocks that underlie the park are exposed. The Atlantic Geoscience Society expressed opposition to the monument in January 2015 and December 2016.
