ATV re­stric­tions are war­ranted

The Glengarry News - - The Opinion Page - ( The Glen­garry News,

The Editor, I re­fer to my let­ter en­ti­tled ' ATV's: Mu­nic­i­pal­i­ties are the boss'

Fe­bru­ary 11, 2015). In re­sponse to the re­ported state­ment by a spokesman for the Glen­daler's Win­ter Sports Club at a re­cent meet­ing with South Glen­garry Coun­cil that, "We cur­rently use green roads (un­opened road al­lowances) in North and South Glen­garry ..."

I wrote in my let­ter as sub­mit­ted for pub­li­ca­tion, that "North Glen­garry By-law no 24-2007 reg­u­lates ac­cess of ATVs (ORVs) driven on all roads fall­ing within the ju­ris­dic­tion of the mu­nic­i­pal­ity, in­clud­ing green roads and un­opened road al­lowances. For good his­tor­i­cal rea­sons the by-law bans ATV ac­cess to green roads and un­opened road al­lowances (with two spe­cific ex­cep­tions in Kenyon) and re­stricts move­ment of ATVs on the roads to day­time hours be­tween 6 a.m. to 11 p.m."

Un­for­tu­nately, my let­ter - as pub­lished - is miss­ing this state­ment so con­fu­sion has been cre­ated for the reader.
