Clearing the air on recreation and public land
I have been misrepresented by the Lethbridge Herald in the June 26th article “Nobody at the Wheel.” This needs to be corrected because providing the public with accurate legal information is my job.
Managing recreational use of public land is hard and complicated. Responsible recreational users might be the first to tell you there needs to be enforcement, education, and a movement towards real trails and campsites instead of industrial disturbances not built for these uses. That is a lot of work and there are serious legal barriers to moving forward.
