Transcript from the Legislature: Black Creek Heritage Rangeland Trails Act
March 1, 2004
Discussion in the Committee of the Whole for Bill 2, Black Creek Heritage Rangeland Trails Act (the area commonly known as the ‘Whaleback’).
Dr. Taft: “Now, the question here is: will Bill 2 as it is proposed impinge on the preservation goals of the management plan for this area? It seems to me that it will in fact impinge because it’s going to allow an increase in off-highway motorized vehicle transportation into this area. It’ll increase vehicle access to the Black Creek heritage March 1, 2004 Alberta Hansard 245 rangeland, and inevitably, it seems to me, that’s going to lead to degeneration in the natural condition of this special area.”
