  1. THE LATEST NEWS FROM CPAWS SOUTHERN ALBERTA VIEW AS A WEB PAGE WHAT WE DO TAKE ACTION DONATE Albertans like you have fought hard to protect important landscapes across Southern Alberta. Your voice has protected the Castle. You helped shape common-sense management plans for the Porcupine Hills and the Livingstone Range. Now, the government is considering rolling back decades of progress to appease a vocal minority. This small user group wants increased motorized recreation in the region at the expense of wildlife, water and other types of recreation. The Minister of Environment and Parks must hear from Albertans who support the existing plans. Write the Minister and your MLA and tell them you support conservation and responsible land management. The government must uphold the existing Castle Parks and Porcupine Hills-Livingstone Plans. WRITE YOUR LETTER HERE Read more about the government backing out of the Castle Management plan: “The Alberta government has quietly paused a planned phase-out of off-highway vehicle trails use in the Castle Parks area while the government meets with stakeholders” Help us protect the Castle and other important places by donating today! Your support will help keep Alberta wild!

  2. X2 on Auto Marine. Have had several repairs done there - they know their stuff.
  3. I’m in the process of replacing our smoke detectors. The current ones are the wired interconnected ionization type. The replacements I’ve ordered are the dual sensor type with battery backup (Kidde model PI2010CA, $45.99 at Rona) so a bit of an upgrade. My CO detectors are the wall plug in type, so they are closer to floor level. I agree with Uber.
  4. Agreed, disinfecting water system is a good idea. I do it at the start of every season. However, I suggest drinking the vodka and using a bleach solution for the disinfection.
  5. Hey Don in the good old days I used to carry a tin cup on the outside of my pack so I could drink from the creeks - no carrying fancy water bottles back then. Of course that was before they invented beaver fever and giardia too.
  6. There’s water available at the Bellevue campground on Hwy 3 right across from The Crowsnest Angler. Potable water is also available on main street Blairmore (west end) just across the street from Integra Tire.
  7. I've had repairs done at Auto Marine in Calgary and can recommend them. They know what they are doing and you can be confident a patch isn't going to blow off while you're out in the middle of a lake.
  8. I agree about the runoff-- should be a good one this year. It's 10:20pm Clive, what's an old fart like you doing up this late? Actually, what am I doing up this late?
  9. That's the rule in national parks. Not so in Alberta fishing regs.
  10. Hey Monger, that wouldn't be a lake that starts with M in a state that starts with M?
  11. Here's a question of interest - does CO2 from metallurgical coal mined in Alberta, shipped to China and burned there, contribute to the world wide level of GHG? It will be interesting to see how the Dippers deal with that question when it comes time to approve a new coal mine in the Crowsnest Pass. Think about that when you start paying higher power bills because we're shutting down coal power generation plants before their design life.
  12. It's not just the Bow. The graphs for the Crow, Castle, and Oldman all look the same - flows well below the lower quartile.
  13. On a similar matter, I was pleasantly surprised to see a CO having a chat with a group of quaders in the Castle area this past week. I can' t say with any certainty that it was an enforcement issue, but it was sure good to have a CO presence. It's long overdue.
  14. Interesting product, however, I'm not sure it will necessarily solve your problem. I use a magnetic release net holder, and usually if I encounter a problem walking through the bush, it's the net bag that gets caught up in the tree branches, not the cord. Anyway, if you find one, let us all know if it works for you.
  15. Try this on -- maybe in a protected area, you don't kill anything. Rather like what goes on in a National Park, or even all the other Provincial Parks.
