You quoted and asked me. I answered. That didn't help your agenda so now you direct to everyone else. Thanks for proving the point that you have none.

How about Jasper? Any thoughts yet? Pretty much the sweetest place to fish in this province. Why? No ATVs allowed and destroying the place. A great example of what things can be.

A little late to the discussion, but I saw this comment and burst out laughing.

Hey 'Joe' - you do know what Lorne Fitch is most recognized for in Alberta, right? He was the driving force behind the highly successful "Cows and Fish" program in Alberta, which was a collaborative project to engage ranchers and acquire provincial conservation resources to protect and restore impacted riparian habitats. It is highly recognized as one of the big "win-win" conservation movements in Alberta, gathering many well deserved awards and accolades.

Anyways, since you clearly know about Google, please look it up - I think you owe Lorne an apology for your off-the-cuff criticism and inflammatory (and ironically inaccurate) statements.

I think the majority of anglers would not be happy about it, myself included, but would accept it as being necessary for the recovery of the fishery in question.
