Ontario Outdoor Recreation Alliance Counters Lands for Life

Group fights for right to fish remote lakes was the title of this article appearing in NorthernLife.ca on October 2, 2013.

In the article, Mike Boudreau, President of Ontario Outdoor Alliance (OntORA), lays out his case for opening up remote fishing lakes to the public, especially in the Wawa and Chapleau areas.

These protected lakes are not closed entirely. They can be accessed by anyone, but only on foot or, in some cases, through an outfitter.

One of the big issues Ontario is facing is that after a timber company comes into an area and logs, they leave roads that were not there before. These roads then turn into easy access for remote fishing lakes. 

What do you think?
Should motorized access to remote lakes be allowed?
What about outfitters?
Should logging roads be decommissioned after logging operations are complete?

I'd love to hear your opinion here. Take a peek at the article and share with me please.
