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.
