VOCM News is giving advice on purchasing an ATV for Christmas.

Buying an ATV for Christmas?
December 23, 2007

Many families in the province will be treating themselves to ATV's as gifts this Christmas. But knowing and following the regulations will perhaps make your ATV experience much more enjoyable.

ATV tragedies, especially those involving children, have led to stricter enforcement of provincial regulations. Several people have been fatally injured in accidents this year. Adult-sized ATV's are limited to drivers 16 or over. Younger drivers must be supervised and on a smaller vehicle and children under 14 are not allowed to drive regardless of the ATV's size. Helmets are mandatory for all users and operating an ATV while impaired is not an option. Vehicles are restricted in environmentally sensitive areas and are not allowed on the public highways except to cross and the operator must be insured. Law enforcement officials stress a common sense approach to enjoying ATV's and urge parental supervision to make sure the regulations are followed.

Great advice! The above photo was taken this morning by the seashore near my community. I spend every spare moment i can riding my ATV and snapping dozens of digital shots on each outing. I live just yards from the Trans Canada Trailway and within minutes i can be enjoying the greatest scenery on the West coast of the island.

Here are a few shots from my outing this morning.

Inappropriate letters from Santa

Canada Post has had to halt letters from Santa to kids for a few days because some are inappropriate. Hopefully they'll catch the culprit behind this and have everything running smoothly again. The letters to Santa program started 26 years ago and until now things have made thousands of kids happy. More here from a CBC News article on the matter.
