Liberal Government slashes MNR budget again. Perhaps the MNR will cancel some of their contracts to make “Road Closed” or “No unauthorized motorized vehicles beyond this point” signs and give back the land to people in Northern Ontario.
Mr James Tregonnning
Nickel Belt provincial Liberal candidate
I would like to respond to your statement from the article ‘Provincial opposition engaging in ‘useless filibustering’ on Apr 16, 2014. You statement was “Premier Kathleen Wynne has the vision and the leadership to create a government that works for the people.” First I would like to tell you this is great news to the outdoor enthusiast of Northern Ontario. And second, I certainly agree that filibustering is always useless.
I would also like to take this opportunity to point out some visions that the people of Northern Ontario have, and would ask that you share these visions with Premier Kathleen Wynne as well as other the MPP of Ontario.
One such vision would be to have a judicial inquiry into the wrong doings of the Ministry of Natural Resource. An inquiry where the chair person has the mandate to call on anyone to testify and the right to lay charges if any individuals should be found guilty.
A vision where forest roads which or on public land never be restricted to the public citizens of Ontario. To remove berms, gates, barricades, signs, or any other means currently restricting the public from using these forest roads. Roads that are in partially paid by and maintained with tax payer money, up to 75 million annually.
A vision where all public lakes and public land would have equal access to all users. If for any reason a citizen of Ontario was to be restricted from lands and lakes, please ensure no other individual, Canadian or Non Canadian would have exclusive access to public lands and lakes. We are looking to our elected leaders to no longer allow Ontario lakes and crown land to be treated as private game preserves.
A vision where the current failure of the adult moose tag allocation be abolished in order to move towards a tag system that will increase the size of moose herds in all Wildlife Management Units.
These are some visions shared by outdoor men and women of Ontario. Will premier Kathleen Wynne share our visions and demonstrate that she has the leadership to create a government that works for the people as stated in your article.
