Forestry campground destroyed

It is a shame that just a few youths have to ruin it for everyone else.

Dear Editor:

It is a shame that just a few youths have to ruin it for everyone else.

For the past five years, youths have burned picnic tables, destroyed the outhouse and cut down young trees to make room to park their vehicles and tents while partying at the Trout Creek Crossing forestry campsite.

This campground is also at an access to the Trans Canada Trail.

This costs the taxpayers more than $500 for  each replacement table, plus the costs to transport, for clean-up and destruction of property.

The Trout Creek Crossing campsite cost about $2,500 after the last youth party there.

It would be a shame to see this site closed.

How would you like your property destroyed?

Anyone seeing damage being done can report it to B.C. Forestry Services at 1-250-558-1700 or 1-250-558-1728.

Take pictures, record license plate numbers.
