Parks Quebec entry fee rises 57%

A daily pass to a Quebec provincial park is now $5.50, up from $3.50. You can expect additional annual 10% entry-fee increases for the next five years. That means $8.50 in 2015. Did you know that in 2001 entry to Quebec parks was free? Well, that all changed with corporate-style management!

So let us welcome you to the new Parks Quebec: where screwing park visitors each and every day is the number one priority.

Clearly they are learning important fee-management lessons from the airport school of price gouging.

Sepaq, which manages Quebec's provincial parks, will now be able to award clearly well-deserved private-sector-size bonuses to their hard-working executive team for these innovations in revenue management.

Sepaq = ripoff central.

This really does suck, they started increasing the user fees to everything in Quebec from PST, driver's licence, registration, taxes, tuition, and now this... Thay should have at least capped it at $6 to make it attractive to still come by on a moments notice but now you have to think about for a bit.

Try getting a refund. There was a death in the family, and SEPAQ has a convenient little rule: no refunds.. If you want to have a credit so that you can book at a later date, you have to provide proof of death (i.e. a death certificate)... I asked why they wouldn't just refund like anywhere else in the world, why it had to be a credit, and they said "because we want to make sure that you come back to our parks!"

haha.. "Never argue with an idiot. They bring you down to their level and beat you with experience."
