Lots of media activity today, I tried hard to make it clear to the media that this wasn't just a MTB issue, but an issue for all users. It's also a big issue for recreation and the local economy in North Van. Here's a couple that I though best covered the full spectrum of the issue from a trail users perspective:
North Shore News
The found the radio interviews are best. More time to explore the issue, less opportunity to cut important facts, but maybe I'm biased cause I'm in them. . .
CKNW, Roundhouse Radio
I have been sharing all info on my Facebook page as it comes to me. My latest update is a request for information:
Why are these trails important to you, your club/organization or your business?
What would be the effect on you if access is prohibited?
I plan to compile this info into a compelling set of information to share with my colleagues in Provincial and Federal government to advocate on behalf of trail access. If you feel comfortable, please share and spread the word. Meetings are being scheduled with CMHC for next week and I'd like to have something for Monday.
If you'd rather comment on these boards, would someone volunteer to compile the info?
Thanks to everyone who has contacted me to offer support and ideas so far.
