CALGARY – Judgment is one of the most celebrated in all of the world, say, a ski resort in Alberdi five years ago.

The province of Lake Louise, Banff National Park, blamed the purchase of a tree stand in December, including the whitebark pine, in the 2013 ski resort.

The residence will be prosecuted in two courts for the Calgary Court: Species At Risk Law and Canadian National Park Law.

132 total trees were removed, but Whitebark was still not pinned by a dangerous pine tree. The crown originally said 39 were removed, but the defense said the number was much lower.

The fine specified by the Hazard Law for each tree per tree is $ 300,000, per tree up to $ 250,000 under the National Park Act.

"We will stop at one end," said Dan Markham, director of Lake Louise Ski Resort.

"Lake Louise wants to move forward and we want to start a repair plan we are collaborating with."

Long, five-needle whitebark pin is high in high birth and threatens invasive diseases, fire and climate change. It is considered essential because it provides nutrients and habitat for animals and the steep subalpine helps to stabilize the steep slopes.

It is about a tree or treeline on the west side of North America. It has been growing for over 100,000 years on the continent and can be between 500 and 1,000 years.

An agreed-upon statement issued by monitoring crews, consisting of six personnel, including a supervisor, began operating in the Ptarmigan Ridge ski resorts in the summer of 2013. Work cleaned, cut and fence and cut and remove some trees.

The document says that at the end of September of that year, the workers cut some trees, inside the threatened white pine trees, without permission.

According to the data, it was not until 12 August 2014 that the Canadian Park and the station personnel were able to evaluate the area for a new vehicle.

DNA testing confirmed that the trees were whitish. The topic was investigated for the investigation and charges were returned to the Canada Parks.

The court says that Lake Louise is a co-operative research and has taken measures to prevent similarities. The resort has also donated money to Whitewashed Pine Initiatives, including extensive maps of the nearby tree.
