Some Edmonton residents have started a petition against the city to hand over control of its beloved river valley to Ottawa management which was turned down by Mayor Amarjeet Sohi.

In a Riverbend neighbourhood, roughly 40 people gave up their Wednesday night to attend a meeting against the plan for a National Urban Park running through the North Saskatchewan River valley and ravines.

The City of Edmonton is currently in discussion with Parks Canada, the Confederacy of Treaty Six First Nations, the Métis Nation of Alberta, and the Government of Alberta about the potential for establishing a national urban park in the Edmonton area.
