Default Province restricts off-highway vehicle recreational use

For the Bow Hunting bear baiters and hunters that may not be aware ...I know there were quite a few not aware..


***********************************************

Province restricts off-highway vehicle recreational use


A temporary province wide restriction on off-highway vehicle (OHV) recreational use on public lands and provincial parks is another tool the province will use to help prevent the spread of wildfires.



This action comes in response to the request of the Alberta Off-Highway Vehicle Association and follows the government’s province wide fire ban and ban on incendiary targets on all provincial Crown lands issued May 5.


“Our fire crews are working around the clock to battle wildfires in Fort McMurray and around the province. All Albertans can do their part to help ensure firefighters can focus their resources on the areas of greatest need.”

- Oneil Carlier, Minister Agriculture of and Forestry


“We do not take this step lightly; however, we must reduce the potential for more wildfires throughout the province. Quite simply, OHV recreational use under our current conditions has the very real potential to contribute to an already catastrophic wildfire season.”

- Shannon Phillips, Minister of Environment and Parks


“We support the government’s decision to temporarily restrict OHV recreational use. As responsible OHV users in this province we want to do our part to prevent wildfires and to reduce the burden on firefighters and emergency personnel.”

- Brent Hodgson, President Alberta Off-Highway Vehicle Association

The OHV restriction will be in place until further notice. It applies to recreational use on public lands, including designated OHV trails, only. It will not apply to agriculture, public safety or commercial/industrial users who operate OHVs for farming, enforcement or business purposes. The OHV restriction does not apply to the use of an OHV by Indigenous peoples when exercising a right recognized and affirmed under Part II of the Constitution Act, 1982 or a right under section 12 of the Natural Resources Transfer Agreement.

Wildfire management staff, along with enforcement personnel, including Conservation Officers and Fish and Wildlife Officers, will enforce the temporary OHV recreational restriction immediately. OHVs include all-terrain vehicles (ATVs), four-wheel vehicles, motorcycles and related two-wheel vehicles and amphibious machines.

I was under the assumption that the use of OHV was not a ban but asked not to use.

Albertafirebans.ca says this "Recreational users of OHVs are encouraged to discontinue use until the wildfire hazard subsides"

Am I missing something?

Where else is it written that one is NOT to use a OHV? I'm not trying to stir anything I'm actually asking a question here. So don't sharpen your knives please.
