Ontario outdoors ever more restricted

The Sault Star  outdoor column writer Tom Keenan says there is a growing dispute between the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources, the Northern Ontario Tourist Outfitters and the fast-growing Ontario Outdoors Recreational Alliance.

In his column he has a  problem. Tom says ” I used to snowshoe into lakes for great fishing, then along came the invention of the snowmobile and you had to spend most of your time getting off the trail so you would not get run over. Then the lakes that you used to get fish in rapidly became fished out as a lot of people could not spell the word limit, let alone abide by it. This is not everybody, but the few ruin it for the majority”.
