A dispute between city council and museum directors will keep one of northern BC’s most impressive dinosaur musems’ doors closed.
The Tumbler Ridge Dinosaur Museum, which has seen a number of fresh discoveries over the past couple years, is still without funding due to its focus on research.
Mayor Don McPherson says he wants the museum to take on a more tourist friendly environment, rather than a research and discovery based operation.
Museum directors believe they have a special operation that is already a mainstay in the community.
The impass has led to the city cutting off funding to the museum, closing the doors until they can find another source of money.
