Conservation Officers to be out in full force during long-weekend

Campfire regulations are still in effect at BC Parks according to the provincial conservation office.

Omineca Conservation Officer, Denny Chretien says the current rules are keeping things natural.

“People cannot have a fire that is larger than a metre high by a metre wide and it’s nice to keep that way so they are closely monitored. The law does provide people must have some kind of suppression equipment with them like a bucket of water that is large enough to put it out has to be close to the site.”

A valid angling license is also required if you wish to go fishing this weekend.
