I feel that as a Canadian and a tax payer, Crown Lands belong to us all, not just those who are granted the privilege of making a profit from out natural resources and then shutting out everyone else. Any Crown land that is opened up to companies exploiting its resources for profit, should then be opened for multiple use recreational opportunities for the public.

I’m a born & raised resident, I work & pay taxes. I fish, hunt and ride locally but come up against multiple gates keeping access to a minimum in lands that should be open for us.

For one company to own that amount of private land that holds that many of the queens resources which is supposed to be for the enjoyment of the people is a shame. Poor decision by the political parties of yesteryear.

Because the forestry companies now mostly owned by taxpayer paid for govt employees, pension plans are hiding behind cheap cheap forestry land taxes while slowly removing lands from the Forest Reserve & chipping off for sale retail pieces of land to fund their pension distributions over time. All the while continuously restricting the public's access to the Crown held waters and much Crown land.

Thanks for adding your voice.

Not just the Alberni valley but all of BC‘s provincial Parks are rivers are lakes all logging roads all back roads everything has been gated denying access to everyone by living in the Cowichan Valley love going out with my dogs into the back roads and exploring unfortunately the vast majority have all been gated and if not for the 4x4’s making entrances by creating an entrance for us to get around A couple of gates in the area we would never be able to enjoy this! Up until this year at least during hunting season they would unlock the gates and allow people to go into the mountains using these back roads unfortunately this year hunting season came and went without any of them being opened it unless you want a quad you were SOL 郎.. as Canadians it is our right to have access to these roads Angie yet I do understand the reason they gated them unfortunately a few idiots that feel the need to dump garbage by going up these back roads and just dumping old furniture and fridges and everything else asbestos drywall shingles for roofing And so much more so as much as I do understand the reason behind it that should not prevent the vast majority of us who are out there to enjoy it not litter and destroy from using these access roads at our leisure. We are Canadians and this is the land of the free . Isn’t it? I definitely support this petition
