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, Ontarioâ€™s collision statistics continue to support the ministryâ€™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?
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.
