Well if BMBA says it ok then I must appoligise. I just read the rules on the map . Sorry, for being rude EcoRiva. (hugs)
No big deal. Thanks for doing so.
I do have a question for you though: I also have respect for the BMBA, but for reasons unknown to me, they barely seem to hold together. I might be good if they could increase their membership and play a larger role. I tried to join twice (a few years back) and simply received no reply. So, my question: why do you so clearly respect their authority on something like this? With respect, you were upset until the BMBA said its ok, and suddenly your ok. Didn't you have what you felt were legitamate arguments which would lead you to disagree with BMBA?
Now to generalize this, what does everyone (including BMBA) think about the BMBA? What would everyone like to see the BMBA become? In terms of trail work, I have done trail days (years ago) but prefer to work on my own. But I would join the BMBA if I could see more clearly who they are. I remember that they have established a relationship with the City of Burnaby. There used to be an OK website, but it became stagnant. Without knocking the BMBA, I also think things are working out pretty good as is: as Whitehonky just described in terms of taking care of the mountain.
What does everyone think?
Syncro - it wasn't SFU that removed the Naheeno tree. I did.
