For the Bulletin

Spring has sprung and with it the snow has melted in the flatlands near Kimberley. Every year there are areas around Kimberley that locals access in order to search for deer and elk shed antlers from the previous fall.

The local RCMP detachment would like to advise and remind everyone that are large majority of these lands are considered Private Property and people on those lands without permission could be held liable and charged under the Trespass Act.

Teck, owns a large majority of the lands and takes seriously their role to protect the land they operate and anyone accessing those lands. Being old mining lands, there is significant risk to anyone who may be on those lands. Teck has a number of security measures in place to deter and identify subjects who may trespassing.

Police would like to remind the public that contravening the Trespass Act is an arrestable offence and the accused would be required to attend court. Please respect all private lands.
