    People please please write letters to your MHA, Councillors, to your local papers, phone talk shows and tell the government to stop the la la talk and make sincere changes to what they are NOT doing to prevent us from being maimed for life or killed by moose roaming and running our roads. It's too easy to sit back and wait for the government-you, your family or friends could be next.
