? Trail Closure

Recommended Posts

We are staying at Manoir du Lac William 2/4 to 2/10.

Does anyone know if the trail closures will effect this region?

Will try and make other plans if not.

ANY help would be appreciated

Hi Fred.  Read thru this post http://www.quebecrider.com/forums/index.php?/topic/4646-2-2017-upa-trail-closures/

That seems to be where most of the riders are posting.  Right now it looks like a few areas are going to have closures but if we are flexible, we should still be able to have good riding available.

We have a Group coming in Sunday to Lac William as well and I was told we will have a decision by 4 o'clock today on this strike. If not resolved today probably not going to be. The Hotel will not waive there cancellation fees.

The threat of blockade of snowmobile trails has led to the Couillard government's agricultural land tax reform.

The new Minister of Agriculture abandons the program set up by his predecessor Pierre Paradis, who had raised the ire of the Union of Agricultural Producers.

"I put an end to the implementation of the agricultural tax reform. This means that the laws in force (of the old program) are maintained, which means that tax refunds will be made to municipalities on the basis of last year's program, "said Minister Laurent Lessard, at the end of the two-day caucus of Liberal MPs in the National Assembly.

Snowmobile enthusiasts can breathe a sigh of relief. "The counterpart is that agricultural producers leave access to the trails right now," he insisted.

There are several snowmobile trails in the province that use land owned by farmers that threatened to deny access to snowmobilers.

"There are about ten feet of snow all over Quebec. Ontarians, New Brunswick, Americans, Europeans, I think the economy of the territory, the snowmobile, the all-terrain vehicle (ATV) is in full development, "Mr. Lessard argued, explaining his decision.

According to the UPA, the reform Paradis was raising the bill of municipal taxes of the great majority of its members.

This view was refuted by the former Liberal minister, who was dismissed last week because of allegations of sexual misconduct against an employee.
