Regarding your article on cigar boats on Shuswap Lake.
Safety is only one concern over cigar and wake boat activity, on any lake actually. Consider the carbon footprint of such activities.
What gives the people who own and operate those machines the right to pollute the atmosphere at a rate far in excess of the average person.
Are they not concerned about climate change?
Do they not have grandchildren?
These are the kinds of frivolous recreational abuses of the environment that must stop, sooner rather than later.
Any restrictions that can be brought to bear are good for us all!
