Today, hundreds of residents are gathering to celebrate the re-painting of the tourist attraction with “non-toxic, environmentally friendly paint,” said Leslie Bruce, president and CEO of Banff Lake Louise Tourism, in a statement
“My grandpa painted the lakebed 100 years ago and here I am now. We all have to do our part to make sure this province stays beautiful. I’m just happy I can follow in his footsteps. I hope my own great grandkids will do the same a hundred years from now,” said Banff Mayor Karen Sorensen.
