That only works for honest people anyways.....so moot point....


Anyone outside those hours gets the attention they don't want.
In the end, it's lack of a smack in the courts that's the real problem.

However the few people you mentioned....which adds up to hundreds a week, and that’s conservative, aren’t necessarily the problem. It’s the fact that now the criminals can easily walk or bike through....scope out what’s there’s to steal, easily watch the pattern of when it’s a good time, and raid the homes, shops, garages, etc. It’s rampant since the trail has gone in. They didn’t have the easy access before. But now they have 24/7, 365 days a year access.
Unless you live along the rail trail you probably have no idea what’s happening. Don’t be so quick to judge something that you know nothing about.


If you are writing here about the section of rail trail in question; the section between the airport, past Eldorado Ranch, and north till about 500m south of Holiday park then...

A) I am very familiar with that area. Most of the crime is between Holiday Park and Beaver Lake Rd. Most of the culprits there are known locals.

B) The original Eldorado, aka. Bennett/LANDM "Ranch" and it's outlying structures are the only possible targets for 2km in any direction of all this rampant thievery to which you have referrred. The log castle on the hill owned by Kevin Bennett is further yet from any of bike riding thieves, and any smart homeowner has access to alarms, lighting, large barking dogs, insurance or .357 magnum to defend their shtuff if need be.

Compared to the $100's of million$ worth of chicanery that the Bennett's have gotten away with in the past, this concern about safety and security is patently absurd.

Wow, I have a ranch there? Cool! And a castle on it? That is quite the barony.

But unfortunately it must mean you are living in a van down by the river directly below it then....especially if you know all about the crime there! Gosh, you need to set up some special Matt Foley motivational classes for the area. I’ve got some space nearby that you could rent..... :up:

But regardless of your continued concern about ranches and castles, equating security issues of a daily train going through compared to hundreds of people per day is what is actually patently absurd.

I ride the rail trail often, and nothing p-isses me off more than to have the trail blocked north of the airport. If there’s any truth to the Bennett’s holding this up...shame on them...how dare they hold this project up for negotiations...very bad example.
