Crown land

Sandra Shore has got it right!  “Off Road Vehicles need to be regulated.” Sorry Guys.

As a snowmobiler, a retired Moto-crosser, and a past member of Search and Rescue. I can say with conviction that we need regulation for the survival of our “crown land.”

Go for a nature hike and you will see much more when you do. (Maybe not what you want to see though)

Check out what happened near Calgary a couple of years ago on Crown land.  Some people with access to Crown land and too many toys, decided it was their right to use crown land as they saw fit and tear up what used to be nice campgrounds.

Don't tell me you have never seen it happen here, because we all have and it's not pretty. Damn the few who do!

I lived in Northern Alberta for a couple of years and in some areas you will get ticketed for even unloading a quad.

Some campgrounds will not even allow your vehicle in if there is a quad in the box of your truck.

Do you really want that to happen here?

Restrict it now before none of us can go in the bush with any motorized vehicle.
