More time for ATVers - BC News - From Castanet

More time for ATVers

The deadline for registering all-terrain vehicles as part of a changing provincial law has been pushed back to Nov. 1 from the original June 1 deadline.
The province has extended the deadline to give off-road users more time to get the mandatory registration, and to allow the details of the regulations to be finalized.
The new legislation, Bill 13 Off-Road Vehicle Act, requires all dirt-bikes, snowmobiles, quads and golf carts to display a licence plate or sticker and be insured if they are used on Crown land.
The combined cost of registration and the plate or sticker will cost $48, according to the B.C. government.
The legislation was introduced by the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Resources in November, in an attempt to reduce the theft and sale of stolen off-road vehicles.
Currently, 20,000 people have voluntarily registered, well in advance of the deadline.

Tuesday on the road just below the parking lot - brown bear cub, rabbit, and a bird I didn't recognise - I would have said rooster, but I have never seen a wild turkey.

Osprey Cam

There are now three eggs in the Osprey nest at Tom and Hilary's. Link on the side bar. Viewing has been hit and miss for me, sometimes the camera is off the air.

Heads Up - Community Mail Boxes

I talked to Canada Post this morning, after finding open cabinets at our mail pick-up site in Oliver. Same thing last week. So far the cabinet with the Baldy mailboxes has not been broken in to.

The snowshoe rabbit's protection is fur colour, blending in with the surroundings. When the seasons change, there are always some amusing moments. I saw this one three times today - just froze in position thinking I couldn't see it.
