BTW........ Timber Harvesting and production are permitted usage of ALR land.
At least there is tries left on their side of Glenmore Rd, more than can be said for some of the neighbors.

This is just a ploy by the Bennett’s, the rail line was always open ,walked along the rails to Winfield many times as a kid. They state they are worried about vandalism and trespassing. I’m sure cyclists and walkers are going to steal a tractor or kill a cow, transients can still easily get on the property. They are certainly holding out for a deal on another ALR property they would like to get exempt.

The rail trail in Grand Forks a few years ago , was being used by thieving sorts , quick quiet access to use relatively undetected.
I sure hope that will not be a problem around here..

I’m sure if you owned that property you’d see if from an entirely different perspective.

LOL
The trail would still be closed as the First Nations won't allow access to their land either

It's obvious that you dont. However some people are interested and support greener solutions.
You always expressed hatred toward bike people, and today, even when we have a solution that moves them away from highway traffic where you won't have to interact with them, you are still not happy.
You objected to this being built and thought they could not raise the money to accomplish it. And now it's getting ready to be used. It will inject money into the local economy... and a lot of people are ok with that..
You just can't please everybody..

I object to idiots thinking expropriating land for a trail is a good idea not that its likely to even be considered after the citys last failed attempt at that, and my hatred towards bike people is towards the idiots who blatantly and purposely ignore the rules of the road so cry me a river 100 years because im sure your one of those pedal bikers to.

what I think is that it would have been a good idea to explore light rail transit from downtown Kelowna to vernon instead of the trail for hiking and biking.

too late now...

It’s not the people walking theirs dogs, or riding their bikes, but it has opened up a whole new playground for the criminals. Theft is up several hundred percent because they can scout out what all the people living along the trail have in their yards, and come back when the owner isn’t around and steal thei equipment, quads, boats, power tools, trucks, etc etc.....before, with the railroad there the access was difficult, and their presence would have been suspicious. It’s a shame that so many refuse to acknowledge that those affected have lost their security, privacy, and lifestyle.

The Bennetts are well known ALR land expropriators when it suited their cabal's interests and yes...

I've ridden my bike through this section dozens of times already.

There is a beach front area off the rail trail about halfway along Duck Lake that looks like it gets used by someone.

So a $22 million payout by the city gets trumped by well known land pirates/barons who have, in the past,( and currently) shown no regard for the land rights of others (ie. Curtis Rd), and now demand "protection" from the same ALC that they have fought in the past.

The irony is hilarious...

Rode the rail trail to Vernon today,passed by hundreds between Oyama and Coldstream. Also stopped by my sisters at Crystal Waters, a multi million house right on the trail. They have never had a problem with trespassers or thieves, but the Bennett’s are worried about someone venturing hundreds of metres off the trail? Give me a break!
