Canada’s National Parks Are Getting Wi-Fi: Expect a Flood of Grizzly Selfies

                           "The birds won't be the only ones tweeting " in Canada's national parks. 

Parks Canada has decided to install Wi-Fi locations in our national parks. These locations will be remote and there will be 20 to 50 installed all around different parks. Over the next three years, that amount could become 75. “Canada is a very big country, and it has become very urban. And for young people from cities, things are different,” said Parks Canada representative François Duclos. 

Personally I don't believe that it's a good idea to install these Wi-Fi hot spots because it ruins the whole point of getting outdoors and enjoying nature. In the quote above " And for young people from cities, things are different" I believe that this means that young people from the city are so used to technology being around them, they don't know what it feels like to be away from it and enjoy the real things in life that aren't on  a screen. By adding these spots, it limits there chancing of enjoying nature to the fullest.  This article has made me realized how much young people depend on technology and how some of us don't outdoors enough.
