Letter: Please don’t restrict use of old railway trail

Dear editor:

Since we all have the right to our own opinion, I can tell you that I rarely agree with issues regarding Rainer Hummel.

However, on his opinion on the former railway line, I totally agree with him, (“Let's all share the old railway trail,” Letter, May 12).

For more than 50 years, the back of our farm has bordered what is now the Upper Canada Heritage Trail.

Dirt bikes, bicycles, ATVs, snowmobiles, horses, walkers, runners all were part of using this trail.

It is unthinkable to me that this might change.

Everyone seems to say they worry about other people when in fact actions like this show they do not.

I trust that when the next sections of the heritage trail are updated, the people who have used this trail for years will not be banned from using it in their accustomed ways.

Otherwise, that will not sit well with me.
