The government of Saskatchewan released the results of their trespass survey.
The survey, which Saskatchewan residents had from August 9th to October 2nd to respond to, saw responses come in through mail, email and an online questionnaire.
65 percent of the over 16 hundred respondents say they would like to see the onus go on the trespasser when it comes to private property, and not on the property owner to put up signage.
Justice Minister Don Morgan says he’s advising people to remain with the status quo until a bill is passed.
However, justice critic Nicole Sarauer says while the necessary consultation was done, she has heard it wasn’t widespread enough.
Sarauer also says without legislation, she’s unsure if it will go to solve the rural crime problem, or if it will just further handcuff hunters and fishermen in the province.
