IMPROVE AND EXPAND CANADA’S SNOWMOBILE AND RECREATIONAL TRAILS (Page 57)
The snowmobile was invented in Canada and, ever since, snowmobiling has been a hugely popular Canadian recreational activity. Our Government has provided support to the National Trails Coalition for a national initiative to create and improve snowmobile and all-terrain-vehicle trails. To date our support has helped improve 500 trails across the country.
We will build on this accomplishment, through additional funding for upgrades and new trails.
Editors note - it also provided support for non-motorized trails, about 8.2 million of 24 million so we wouldn't want that contribution to be missed as fact. We would ask all parties to consider trails funding as part of their platform.
