ALBERTON - Alberton Town Council is not sending a letter supporting the development of an ATV trail after all.

Town Council gave councillors Blair Duggan and Kelly Williams the go-ahead during their November meeting to pen a letter in support of the Tignish Sportsmen Riders Club’s interest in developing a trail, but to review the letter with fellow councillors before sending it.

Duggan stressed during the December meeting that the letter was not supporting access to the Confederation Trail.

Furthermore, he announced that council was not in favour of the drafted letter and that Mayor Michael Murphy raised liability concerns.

Council subsequently decided against sending the support letter.

    I guess the ATVs will continue to peacefully prowl the streets and roads of western PEI. Probable a wise move on Aberton's council. Enforcement isn't easy but hopefully will continue.
