Information for the public

The following information is provided by the Community Constable for the Town of Happy Valley-Goose Bay:

On the weekend of April 11-12 the Town of Happy Valley-Goose Bay’s Community Constable, along with several RCMP officers, conducted snowmobile patrols on the Groomed Trails around the Goose Bay region.

Specific areas of focus were identification of trail passes, drinking and driving and snowmobiles with loud exhausts. The weekend was considered a success with no drinking and driving occurences, 80% of trail users in possession of trail passes and only one snowmobile with a loud exhaust. This was the most recent patrol of several during this winter.

We encourage residents to always put safety first while enjoying the outdoors. DO NOT drink and drive, watch ice conditions as they can change fairly fast in the spring and respect others while using the trail system.
