Insurance Inspections at Squamish

Squamish - Insurance compliance update: Sat May 27 & Sun May 28th at the Forest Service Road ( FSR) known as the Mamquam.

On both days Provincial Conservation Officers (CO) asked for proof of insurance. The officers were peaceful, and friendly. Both times I was asked, my motorcycle was still in my truck, and hadn't been ridin yet. , I guess there is a presumption that you are going to ride on the FSR, although you can acess the trail head without being on the FSR if you know the area, i dont think the trails require insurance.

Trails BC, ATVBC, BCORMA, and the Province working together to create mixed-use trail network across BC

As many of you know, there has major conflict around summer-motorized enjoyment of the TransCanada Trail rail trails for years. This has escilated to where ATVBC, Trails BC, Provincial trails managers and their Assistant Deputy Minister, and I meet in a basement cement room for 8hrs to hammer out steps to solutions.

We have agreed to using a Respect-Based model, where all trail users acknowledge others wants for a quality trail experience. A tool-kit was developed, and we decided on two sections of the TCT to move our model onto the ground.
