Update #5: No Trespassing Signs on Mt. Seymour
This will be the last post for today, but probably the most important. While there is no new information to share, please like and share this post if you are concerned about the future of these trails. When you share, make sure to comment and ask your friends to comment on this original post.
I wanted to respond to a question I've heard from many who have contacted me and said:
"Mathew, what can I do to help?"
CMHC's most recent statement makes it clear that access is prohibited for safety reasons. They also state they will be engaging with interested parties on options for future use and management.
Meetings are being scheduled next week with CMHC. I would like to build a very compelling set of information to make the case on your behalf, and on behalf of all users, that access to these trails should be permitted.
If you use these trails, why do you use them and what does that mean for your life?
If you are part of a group, club or organization that uses these trails, what group are you from and how many members do you have?
If you are a business that relies on these trails, how many people do you employ, how much economic activity do you generate and how will this prohibition affect your business?
If you want to help and you feel comfortable sharing this information publicly, leave your comments below. If not, send me a message and I will treat it with absolute privacy, confidentiality and anonymity, removing any personal information and adding it only to an aggregate of comments.
If you want to help and you want to protect access to these trails, let your elected officials know how and why these trails are so important to you. Contact your MLA and MP. I have myself and will continue to do so.
And again, this is the most important post to like, share, comment on and tag your friends. Let's get the word out how important these trails are to everyone!
