Save Our Neighbourhoods & Home Properties from Damages Resulting from Roaming Cattle

Petition Summary:

Did you know that if cattle from a neighbouring ranch venture onto your land and incur damages that you are responsible for the costs? Did you know that it is your responsibility to fence your property to protect your assets from neighbouring cattle, not the other way around?

 Yes, its true thanks to the Range Act that was penned in 1864.

The Free Range Act may have been appropriate as an incentive for settlers to move into Northern British Columbia 150+ years ago, however in the present time of 2018 when the Tyee Lake and region has evolved into a rural subdivision this Law is no longer suitable to our area.

For those of us living in the Bulkley Nechako Skeena areas which are under the enforcement of a RANGE ACT POLICY this can mean ongoing harassment from cattle damaging our gardens, yards, property, and posing very real risk to our water sources through Fecal contamination.

Please support our efforts to change the district designation from A Livestock District to a District that reflects our modern lifestyles and developments; a District where cattle are not permitted to roam free and where livestock owners may be held liable for damages and issues regarding trespass

 Action Petitioned For:

To the Honourable the Legislative Assembly of the Province of British Columbia, in Legislature Assembled:

 We the undersigned are concerned citizens who urge our leaders to act now to disestablish and or vary the boundaries of the Livestock District in the Bulkely Nechako Skeena region.

Your petitioners respectfully request that the Honourable House address our concerns to protect its citizens from damages being incurred by livestock at large in the area.
