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)."

    I'm really hoping that this is the start of a long term solution to accessing services in the Town of Parrsboro. There are not many places on the trail system where gas, food & accomodations are readily available - there is a lot of untapped potential for the Town and its businesses for the winter months. Snowmobilers only have a couple of month to do there thing, and in doing there thing they spend money - a lot of it.
