WHEREAS current laws don’t do enough to address problems farmers continue to experience when hunters, ATV’s and snowmobiles enter upon farmland without permission and risk the safety of the occupants (human and livestock); and
WHEREAS this unauthorized entry onto farmland introduces a risk of disease and noxious weeds and invasive species;
BE IT RESOLVED that SARM lobby the appropriate ministries to amend legislation to change trespass laws so access onto farmland is granted with the permission of the landowner or lessee only.
