We presently have an opportunity to submit a proposal to the Environmental Law Centre at the University of Victoria for a study of the problem experienced by many individual members of our member organizations when they wish to access private timberlands, most notably on Vancouver Island, for fishing, caving, hiking and cycling, among other activities.
We believe that forest companies may not necessarily be consistent in the way they prohibit access, as we understand that in some cases the landowners are prepared to rely on the general commercial liability insurance carried by clubs. We also question whether the recreation exclusions of the Occupier’s Liability Act are being sufficiently taken into account by the companies. Hence our interest in seeking this study.
