Snowmobilers fuel up during a recent stop at Wheaton's Irving in Parrsboro.
PARRSBORO - Snowmobilers are welcome in town as long as they cause no complaints, according to the local RCMP.
Although the police have received some complaints about off-highway vehicles, i.e. snowmobiles, some have made it into the local gas station to fill up and Cpl. Janet LeBlanc did not seem to have a problem with that.
"Logistically, during the day, some of them have to come in here to get gas," she said. "If they have all their proper papers and are mindful of people's property, that's not a problem. It's when they're tearing around private property, or drinking, and going late at night (that's a problem)."
