Would closing the Gatineau Park roads at night (and early morning) have a deleterious effect on nature photography in our region? Much would depend on the specific hours of closure, I expect. You can have your say in an NCC survey.

Driving through Gatineau Park could come with a curfew in the future, as the National Capital Commission considers updating its master plan.

The NCC launched a survey on Tuesday to consult the public on a number of ideas, including possible changes to Camp Fortune, putting some restrictions on large events in the park and closing its parkways at night.
