We've been struggling with this ourselves. In the end, the roads get opened and everyone under the sun uses them (I speak of primary logging roads), but not the canoeists who oppose them. They get well used and are never closed. But we don't use them. Does that make sense?

Thanks Brian.

Important distinction: FOT is not trying to increase non-motorized restrictions. We support the provincial policy of keeping roads in restricted areas off-limits to motorized access. We're not trying to change the rules. FOT is just a watchdog organization trying to ensure the the existing rules are honoured.

Thanks for the clarification.

Maybe at the next COTS I could learn some more about the workings of the FOT. One meeting a year does not give us newbies enough.

Cheers

I agree that on any road capable of passing a car or light truck easily, its unlikely you will stumble into a restricted area.
