The vindication of Steve Riggs
Comments continue to pour in to the Post which I made on Jan 2 entitled Dogs. Duane left a comment today which finally motivated me to get to the bottom of this.
Furthermore, I don’t mean to belabor this subject, but I did some investigating and thought this was relevant and important, seeing as how popular West Bragg is with dog-owners, and the confusion which seems to surround the issue.
Dogs ARE NOT required to be on leash on the West Bragg ski trails.
Dogs ARE required to be on leash in the West Bragg parking lot.
West Bragg Creek ski trails are classified as Provincial Forest Lands and you can read the rule right here:
The rule states, “we recommend that it be leashed at all times.”
Recommend and required are two very different things.
The West Bragg parking lot is classified as a Provincial Recreation Area, and dogs are required to be on leash.
I, and others took Steve to task when he said that dogs are not required to be on leash. He was about 95% correct.
