MONTEBELLO – The Omega Park and the Safari Park, which rely on the course of observation of the animals in the car, do not understand the logic that they must remain closed while Quebec is re-launching the activities of camping and national parks.
According to these two tourist attractions, respectively, located at Montebello, in the Outaouais region, and in Saint-Bernard-de-Lacolle, in Montérégie, this decision undermines both jobs and the economy of the two regions.
“Our drive, our sanitary blocks and spaces of power were adapted to maximize the distance the physics and allow visitors to wash and sanitize their hands”, said Jean-Pierre Ranger, president of Parc Safari, by issuing a press release.
The two zoos have faced the crisis by developing a plan for reopening the joint and adjusting their course according to the rules laid down by the public health community, including the separation physical.
In the dark as to the resumption of their activities, the Omega Park and the Safari Park are very worried for their summer season, but say they are confident that the minister of Tourism, Caroline Proulx, will hear their call.
“When we see the Toronto Zoo to convert its hiking trail route by car and receive the green light from the Ontario government to re-open, we have no other choice but to ask us why the animal parks in quebec visited by car do not receive the same permission,” said his side Charles de Reinach, director of the Park’s operation Omega.
