Letters: Access but not unlimited

Access to lands past back country park should not be unlimited

Mr. Terrance Martin’s reference to eco-corporatism in his last letter was very interesting. Ms. Simeon’s involvement with a forest land conservancy organization and Mr. Arnold’s work in the area building wilderness access trails (mostly on his own time and dollar) seem to put them in this category.

I think our country,our kids and our  grand kids are much better off if we give our support (however we can) to this eco- corporate movement if it truly exists. It certainly is better than Mr. Harper’s style of corporate support on our tax dollar to corporations already making healthy profits while extracting the renewable and un-renewable resources of our country.

I can remember back to when there was unlimited access to the upper Harbourview Road area, it was kind of a cross between a garbage dump and an auto wrecking yard before the CRD got involved. I don’t think we should risk going back there. There is still legal access to the area, hunting and fishing is still allowed, just not unlimited access.

Everyone takes a trip up to bullsh*t mountain once in a while, I just hope not to get lost up there. Maybe we can improve the road access so people can get in and out of there quicker.
