The Alberta NDP are ready to pick another fight with Alberta farmers and ranchers but this time, the NDP are ready to go to war with hunters, outdoor enthusiasts, motorsports fans and ATV dealers.
What’s going to make all these people mad? The NDP are making changes to the laws surrounding ATV use in Alberta. They are examining helmet laws for both public and private lands and mandatory age restrictions for ATV use.
Putting age restrictions on ATVs will infuriate farmers and hutterites who use ATVs as farm tools. Age restrictions will also render the smaller machines many ATV dealers carry nearly unsellable. New laws would also mean directing limited rural police resources towards the millions of acres of Alberta crown land when violent crime is on the rise.
Just like Bill 6, Dear Nanny Notley is back to save those poor hillbilly kids from their witless and negligent redneck parents.
The lefties love their “if it saves one life” argument. They use it for everything from gun control to bike lanes. It’s an argument best used when standing on the graves of someone else's kids doing things their grieving parents never asked you to do.
Is this the NDP master plan? Are the NDP saving the environment by making sure nobody ever goes outside again?
