You didn’t miss much, it only mentioned the Leeds and Liverpool closure, nothing about the rest of the system shutting down!

 

The canal system is a bit like a body with Cancer :

 

The body starts to shut down, organ by organ,  bit by bit by bit until it can no longer function.

Thankfully there are those of us willing to be antibodies and fight all we can against such infections.

Parry mentioned towpaths quite a lot..........

Well he would. C&RT as a navigation authority is a disaster, as a leisure provider very successful apart from the cyclists mowing down walkers. The man is not interested in navigation, promises boaters lots, delivers very little. He's also very successful at building a brand at the expense of navigation. It's better by water but not on it.

Note the semantics "Life is better by water" not "better on water"...
