Newsletter 2 December 3, 2013

We don't like to send you multiple newsletters in the same month and let alone in the same week, but some important developments have happened that we wanted to inform you all.

One of our club members received an answer from the Hon. Glen Murray (Minister of Transportation) yesterday in regards the members letter to the Minister in regards to the changes proposed on Nov. 7 by Grant Crack, MPP. See http://sdrv.ms/1bsaznu

Quote: "While single-rider ATVs were granted limited access for use on public roads in 2003, Ontario’s collision statistics continue to support the ministry’s concerns with their on-road safety record. As a result, the ministry is not considering expanding current on-road access for additional ORV types, such as two-up ATVs and side-by-side ATVs, at this time."

This was not the answer we where hoping for at all to say it the least and non of the clubs in Ontario are going to let this happen, but we need your help.


So what can you do about it?

  • Send more emails and letters to the minister. He needs to be convinced. For details on that please read this. http://sdrv.ms/1bsaznu
  • Make sure your local MPP is getting CC'ed
  • Talk to all our friends and fellow power sport enthusiasts and make sure they all inform the minister about this.
  • Use the power of Social Media. You can find the Hon. Glen Murray on Facebook here: https://www.facebook.com/MPPGlenMurray or on Twitter here https://twitter.com/glen4ont. Use @Glen4ONT to tweet him.
  • Keep your ATV club in the loop. You can ask questions at info@coatv.ca, via our Facebook at www.facebook.com/coatvclub or by using twitter @coatvclub.

We are not giving up.

There is wide political support across all parties including the ministers own Ontario Liberal Party for allowing 2up ATVs and Side by Sides under regulation 316/03.

Please take action now and let's make this happen.

Happy trails,
Central Ontario ATV Club.
