LETTER: helicopters are disturbing to wildlife

LETTER: helicopters are disturbing to wildlife

Dear editor,

I am writing in regards to proposed heli-biking on the Mt. Cartier and Joss Mountain trails. Sooner rather than later we should look after other species than ourselves. There used to be mountain goats and grizzly bears around the top of Mt. Mackenzie. In fact 30 years ago I had a grizzly bear in the back yard eating berries off the Devils Club plant. There were always lots of goats on Mt. Cartier. Helicopters are disturbing to wildlife and they are flying summer and winter in wildlife areas. Bikes on steep trails wear grooves that make for poor walking. Parts of the Keystone trail are an example.

Give nature a break,

Allan McInnes
