I agree with you all the way but I want to point out the word "discretion" in the quoted part of your post.

That is where the plan falls apart because as Trapp pointed out, campfire caused fires are for the most part due to non-compliance.

As with all things in life, it is the minority who cause issues for the rest so what do you do?

Again, as per Trapp who seems to know what he/she is talking about; if there is no immediate need for a ban, put the gun back in the holster.

The fine though for anyone found to be responsible for starting a forest fire at anytime needs to be swift and painful and very, very public.

Agreed mexicalidreamer :smt045 , I worded that post poorly and it didn't come across with what I actually meant to say:

Exactly, human caused fires can be caused by a multitude of reasons. Campfires are just one of the many reasons. There is no need for campfire bans unless the Province mandates it. When campfire bans are not in place people should still use discretion, sometimes there isn't a ban but you can easily see it is too dry and maybe they haven't had a chance to update the signage or see the area for themselves.

Irresponsible people like that ruin it for everyone else.
