Town of Cochrane to consider closing a habitat

The town of Cochrane is looking at closing down Polar Bear Habitat. By and large, the biggest tourist attraction in the District, town council says the municipality cannot financially afford to keep the facility afloat. It’s running an annual deficit of about $400,000, which accounts for five per cent of tax revenue.

A final decision will be made once public input is gathered at an open house on November 18.
