MOUNTAINS — A resort developement proposed along the edge of Canmore, Alberta, would be the largest in the history of the Canadian Rockers, according to a story in the Calgary Herald.

It’s the anchor of a proposal by PricewaterhouseCoopers Inc. to develop the community with a total of 2,549 residential units, 1,000 resort accommodation units and two hotels with 250 rooms each, as well as other businesses, on 1,110 acres — about 80 per cent of the remaining developable land in the mountain town.

The proposal could add 10,000 people to Canmore’s population.

Kaninaskis Country — gateway to Mount Assiniboine Provincial Park and Banff National Park and home to dozens of smaller parks — could be getting crowded.
