I can second that I saw people getting tickets after crossing the Mamquam train bridge.



Saw a couple and their two dogs nearly get run over on that bridge. They were in the middle when a train approached, and one of their dogs got frightened to the point that it wouldn't move. They all had to cram themselves against the edge of the tracks and were literally inches away from the train. Seriously some scary ****. I thought someone would have to fish out their dog should it have gone over the edge.  :o

Hmmm..for people who frequent those fishing bars, could be a very expensive fishing trip. Add in the costs for gas, fishing rod and tackle, plus parking tickets, and trespassing fines - just for four fish. 
How much does it cost for everything, just to ski in Whistler?

There are bridge tickets and parking tickets, haven't seen proof of trespassing to cross over to SeaBird or Scale.

Thinking out loud, how does DFO get to the Scale?  If they get special crossing exemption, wouldn't they say something?

Every DFO I've met is "good people".  As are 9 outta 10 persons with lines in the water.

DFO uses private property off landstrom road which they have unique and special permission to use

Trouble is almost the entire upper river is cut off by tracks from Mission to Hope if you can't cross . As far DFO is concerned , they too would have to cross the tracks in most places , they may be able to do it with out crossing some places just like the public , but the majority is not accessible with out doing so .

If I am not mistaken the DFO has peace officer status and as such can cross railway's without problem.

Giving tickets for the bridge makes sense.  BUT, giving tickets for simply crossing the tracks?  Do they seriously expect people to be cut off vast stretches of the river due to some railway?  That is stupid.  The sign says to do so at your own risk.  This implies it is OK, as in not forbidden.

been fishing at scale daily. not once have seen anyone get tickets nor be stopped yet crossing train tracks. only one there was native dood on monday counting for pinks. dosent even look, takes your work for it. what a waste of time and out tax money to not even look. is this to please native fishing and hire one that isnt in our fisheries...no offence but why do they regulate our fishing when we have no say in thiers...sorry off top. i know for a fact forestry does this to make peace.
i have also seen all new cement barricades at entrance to seabird and new no parking signs...signs are only in certain areas so watch where you park. plenty of non signed parking for a bit of a walk. not sure why they choose to single seabird out and not the others. now to bad they didnt take that cash cow and put it back into conservation or some improvments to make it axcessible. instead of the gov`s deep pockets

I remember that, I was there too. A pretty frightening scenario.

So I emailed cn and this was their response;

Good Afternoon
 
CN does not allow non-railroad personnel permission to be on CN property unless they are there for railroad purposes.  This is a very clear safety issue.  CN Police and others have spend a great deal of time educating the public on the dangers of trespassing on railway property.  One of the things we as an industry are under close scrutiny for is property trespasser issues, so we do not make exceptions, no matter how innocuous the request seems.  One should only cross the tracks at designated crossings that have been approved by CN.
 
 
Thank You
Have A Safe Day
