LETTER: Lack of washroom access at top of Sulphur concerning

My husband and I recently hiked up and down Sulphur Mountain while the gondola whizzed by us.

Does Pursuit with their “safety promise” clean the gondolas between patrons?  

We were aware, due to the sign at the bottom of the trail, that the washrooms are off limits to the hundreds of folk that walk the trail every day. 

Drinking about 1,000-1,500 mls of water on a hot day, with a normal kidney filtration rate, all of us will need to go. Our bladder signals this when it has approximately 250 mls in it.

It seems that Parks Canada is turning a blind eye to the fact that hundreds of us will need to empty our bladders behind a tree at some time during the three-to-four hours we are on the trail. 

At the top, three Pursuit workers made sure we did not use their recently renovated washrooms. The boardwalks at the top were packed.

People waiting in line for the gondola at the top were centimetres apart from each other. Yet, Pursuit’s "safety promise” did not appear to apply to any of that.
