Here in the City of Lakes, one that has won awards for its efforts to repair the environment, I witnessed behaviour on Ramsey Lake near Bell Park that should be banned in a community that brags about its quality of life.
A middle-aged man rammed across the lake in a personal watercraft vehicle — you know a snowmobile on skis — for 20 minutes. He disturbed the peace of the people enjoying the park, and worse, took delight in scaring the geese and goslings in the area.
Many people and wildlife — to say nothing of the impact on the shoreline and water quality — were affected negatively for one person to have a joy ride.
These one-person floating motorcycles should be banned in Ramsey Lake for the benefit of all. I urge people to contact the city officials and their councillors if they agree.
