You are correct that the NSMBA has zero authority as to which groups use the trails. They can only advocate for trail use, but it is obviously not in their mandate to enforce any policies. That is up to the land managers. In the case of Fromme, that is mostly the DNV.
Their responses to my inquiries about e-bike policy are the same as others have received here: "As of yet, there is no formalized policy pertaining to e-bikes. However, the District of North Vancouver currently does not encourage the use of e-bikes on mountain bike trails on District property."
This would be fence sitting at its finest. No idea what 'does not encourage use of' means.
"Does not encourage use of means that it is "not ok" or "no confirmation they are allowed" to be used on their land. I'm not sure where you get "fence sitting" from.
