Parks Canada honours thousands who helped build parks
Parks Canada opens a new exhibit Thursday at Banff's Cave and Basin Historic Site.
The Cave and Basin is known as the birthplace of Canada's National Parks system and the first hot springs in Banff.
But what's lesser known is that more than eight-thousand people, most of them European, were held in internment camps across Canada and hundreds of those were housed at camps near the hot springs during the First World War.
Steve Malins is with Parks Canada.
