Who were the NDP listening to when they were making their decision to ban quads, ATVs, snow mobiles, dirt bikes - basically all motorized fun - from the New Castle Wilderness Park?
One group that has the ear of the NDP is the Yellowstone to Yukon Initiative, or Y2Y.
But why should we care about Y2Y? They’re just some well-meaning grassroots conservationist group like your local hunting and angling association, right?
That’s what the Calgary Herald and the rest of the mainstream media calls them: a conservation group, but Y2Y is exactly the opposite.
They aren’t grassroots. Instead, they’re one of those foreign-funded American meddlers in Canadian politics that has bigger plans for Canada than just having the government expel hundreds of outdoorsy types from the public lands they use near the Crowsnest Pass.
Y2Y says it wants an “interconnected system of wild lands and waters stretching from Yellowstone to Yukon, harmonizing the needs of people with those of nature”.
Basically they want to turn all the Rockies into a park.
Look, everyone likes clean water and wants to protect animal habitat, but that’s how organizations like Y2Y fool you. It’s never really about what they say it’s about.
Watch my video to see what Y2Y’s real motivations are and where they get their money from. Some of it is from you!
All of this is why it’s so important to push back against Y2Y and their foreign plans for Alberta public lands. We can't just give them a win. Maybe you don't camp or don't have a quad or a snowmobile but a win for Y2Y now, especially with a friendly provincial government, is just going to embolden them.
This isn't going to stop at your neighbour’s RV. Y2Y wants Alberta jobs kicked out of the Rockies too.
