May 1, 2003

Click here to read.

The Second Reading, Committee of the Whole, and Third Reading of Bill 16, the Agricultural Dispositions Statutes Amendment Act, 2003, which became the Recreational Access Regulation (RAR) under the Public Lands Act.

“The intent of the bill is to promote co-operation and respect between disposition holders and other users of public leased land for grazing. In particular, it addresses recreational users and industry that may want access to the land for exploration. The legislation sets clear rules that encourage better communication.”

Recreational access disputes on public leased lands continues to this day, despite the passing of the RAR.

We simply need that wild country available to us, even if we never do more than drive to its edge and look in. For it can be a means of reassuring ourselves of our sanity as creatures, a part of the geography of hope.
