UPDATE: Is there something more “sinister” behind NDP’s OHV ban?

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show

The NDP have done no economic impact study of their ideological decision to ban off highway vehicle users and random camping from the new Castle Park near the Crow’s Nest Pass in southern Alberta.

We filed a freedom of information request looking for records pertaining to the economic impact of the proposed ban of off road vehicles in the new Castle Region wilderness area.

Guess what? Those documents do not exist.

The NDP hadn't bothered to consider all the people near Castle Park whose livelihoods rely on the dollars spent on ATVs, recreational vehicles, groceries, fuel, camping supplies, equipment and accommodations before they made their decision to chase those dollars away from the area.

According to the Canadian Off Highway Vehicle Association, the OHV industry in Alberta alone, has an economic impact of between $1.4 to $1.8B and creates the equivalent of 7,600 full time jobs.

But none of that mattered when the NDP rushed to blindside Alberta riders with their decision.

If the NDP aren't listening to the trail riders and they don't seem to care about the people who make a living providing services to trail riders, then who are the NDP listening to?

I'm looking into that all this week, so stay tuned.

NDP sucks..
Great post with much enlightening information…!!
We cannot call the uninhabited land of Canada crownland any longer… It does not belong to the crown it belongs to the people of Canada and therefore must be referred to as public land. Public lands are at the disposal of the people not the regulating force that would handcuff us to chains and a yolk and refer to themselves as government..
The people of this country do not need to be governed but they do need to govern and maintain governance of the forces who we elected to lead in the direction of where the majority want to go and not pursue their own quiet little agendas for profit..
Time to support harsh measurements for any governing authority to be found not working in the best interest of the citizens of this province or country.!!
Harsh measures indeed.!!

Dan, Stu, NDP sucks – google “buffalo commons” or “Biosphere reserve plan”

The ultimate goal of glbalism is to impoverish populations by siezing/controlling public lands – this is being done under the guise og environmental preserve and actuated through Agenda 21’s local governance directives:

Regional government is the method by which the global ruling elite is slowly dismantling the sovereignty and constitutional protections of the world’s nations. Regional Governance is the method whereby globalist governors intend to control every aspect of our lives. Without the full implementation of Regional Governance, their Agenda 21 plan for global governmental dominance cannot succeed…. (Governance, as opposed to Government, means “control by arbitrary rules, restrictions, and regulations. beyond the democratic system to change”). In order to subvert the sovereignty of the United States and Canada and the allocation of powers expressed in both our. Constitutions, a parallel and entirely supra-constitutional governance structure, termed “Regional Government,” has been covertly established over the past half century where globalist NGOs and committees have more regulatory power than government. The regional governance plan is that North America “Region 1” is to merged into the North American Union. The Sierra Club, in cooperation with the IUCN and the UN, has re-mapped North America into 21 “bio-regions.” Just as the United Nations requires for each designated World Heritage site, each bio-region is divided into three zones: 1) wildness area where human intrusion is forbidden, 2) buffer zones surrounding the wilderness area where human access is strictly controlled and limited, and 3) cooperation zones, where humans would be permitted to live, although their activities could be sharply circumscribed.

And the round up begins, by limiting access to crown lands and private property.

The back country is getting shut down everywhere…that’s where it starts.
This is what is happening with things like the Supreme Court of Canada’s landmark decision to grant aboriginal title to a B.C. native group (the Tsilhqot’in) over a large tract of land — the first award of its kind; all those logging roads being decommissioned in BC, cutting off access; or like what happened in Clark County Nevada on the Bundy Ranch, committed by Obama and the BLM
AGENDA 21 – abolish private property…
“…The U.N. believes that land ownership contributes to “social injustice,” in other words it is unfair that some people own vast amounts of land while others own little. In order to rectify this, they are going to control all the land, tax you for owning it and redistribute the resources in order to achieve social equality…"

Whose butts does Justin have his nose so far up?
Wynne, and Notley? They’re all in it together…the three amigas.

STU MAC. Here is a copy/paste of the facebook entry you were referring to about Shannon Phillips and Harvey Locke who is president of Y2Y (Yellowstone to Yukon) a conservation group. It seems Shannon and Harvey are planning to restrict some of this area from people who use it for recreation and hiking. This meeting happened on easter weekend.

This is the post that was deleted yesterday. A facebook member posted this after he overheard conversations between Shannon Phillips and the Y2Y director. Here is the entire post again. Share the heck out of this folks, lets get this out to the general public.
Again this is quoted by a recently deleted facebook member:
Today was a very sad, yet enlightening day for me. Also very timely given the post yesterday by Bryan Lichfield regarding the Yukon to Yellowstone (Y2Y) group.
This morning I was sitting with my family having Easter breakfast at Stella’s diner in downtown Lethbridge. Lo and behold who should walk in, but everyone’s favorite hypocrite, lie to her constituents, Lethbridge MLA and environment minister Shannon Phillips. She sat down at a table 3 feet from me.
Even more interesting was who she was with. She was with Harvey Locke, the founder of Y2Y and his wife Marie-Eve Marchand. If you are not familiar with these people, Google search them. You’ll be very enlightened. If you have never met Mr. Locke, he loves to hear himself speak……. Loudly. This proved to be beneficial because I (and the rest of the restaurant) could clearly hear most of their conversation.
Mr. Locke had a map laid out in plain view on the table in a public restaurant for all to see. He was showing Shannon the map, pointing to areas, and telling her that trails need to be closed and access restricted because these were traditional Buffalo migratory paths and breeding grounds. The area on the map looked to me like either the Porcupine Hills or the Livingston Range because it was long and thin. It was definitely not the castle area.
They talked for quite a while, and in Shannon’s defence Locke did 90% of the talking. Shannon was just looking at the map, smiling and nodding her head.
Then the scariest words of all were uttered, Locke turned to Shannon and said “now all we have to do is get you reelected” and their entire table burst out laughing.
Up until this moment I actually thought we had a chance to make a difference. I filled out my survey, I went to the public meetings and protests, and diligently wrote more letters than I can count. I realized today it was all for naught. These are Shannon’s friends and they are her beliefs. She was an environmental activist before she was elected and will continue to be. We can protest and make white noise all we want but she will not change her mind. The Castle Park is happening and it would appear there are more closures to come.
People…….. we have lost the battle. We need to accept that and refocus our efforts on how we can now win the war.
We need to abandon the notion that they’re listening to us. We need to accept the fact that despite them making it seem like we have a voice, we do not. They are not listening and we cannot change this governments mind. Instead we must devote our time and energy into changing the government itself. We need to transition from “protesters” into “campaigners” and ensure that come election time, the NDP are removed from power and replaced by someone more sympathetic to our way of life.
I attached a couple pictures I took. Shannon is the one in the yellow scarf. Im kicking myself for not trying to get a picture of the map.
Please share this post. We may have lost the castle (for now) but hopefully this knowledge can help some of our OHV friends elsewhere from also losing their riding area.

Environazis strike again. Pretty soon the only way we’ll be able to enjoy our great outdoors will be in picture books. I’m sure they will make videos for us to watch.

Some bike and OHV trails have been barb wired for your decapitation. I watched the story on TV tonight. Nobody will admit they did that, could it be pinko voters, kids, SJW’s, or greenies, we’ll never know. Hideous thing to do though and over the top in terms of a protest or protectionism.

Sorry supposed to be a like in the say no to the RV ban Facebook page, about a member seeing Phillips and the founder of y2y sitting down looking at maps around the area.

Sheila – research the Dipper record on tabling bills to shut down motor sports – I recall at least 2 – one against drag racing, one against formula – they hate cars – they hate motor sports among other things too numerous to list.

I went through their ‘unbiased’ questionnaire. Basically the question about OHV was a choice between OHV’s are bad and OHV’s are evil. The questions on free style camping and hunting were similar. My written comment was that they needed actual conservation groups who know what an environment is to have had input into the policy and questionnaire.

It’s not enough to ban and or seize guns. The Communists want to ensure people cannot set up outside of the major urban centres when the time comes to overthrow the tyrants!
My opinion.

Gauls , in the old days, we crossed over to England Ireland and Scotland, then we elected priests, then in a thousand years or so we got Christianity, now we are back to being Gauls , ruled over by the Druids , the priests
This is all about rock and tree worshipping, meanwhile our school kids are sacrificed to the Ecco gods by our uneducated minister , Dave if you were a train you’d get a good eggen !
