NOVA SCOTIA LONGBOARDERS BEWARE



Wes posted,


Ok guys listen up there coming for ya. So you boys out
east better be armed with knowledge or your all gonna
go down in flames. As in NO MORE FUN.
First off, remember this, anyone that says it's dangerous
it's only their OPINION nothing more. If it's the law,
reporters, drivers, etc, it's an opinion that's it. Nothing
more.
Secondly you can clearly see it's defined within the
Nova Scotia motor vehicle act.
So what do we do??? oh I know invoke your Canadian
charter of rights. There's all sorts of good stuff about
lawful assembly, and mobility rights. Lol one must use
the imagination ok.
PLEASE REMEMBER IF ANY ACT OR STATUTE
INTERFERES/VIOLATES WITH YOUR CHARTER
THEN THAT ACT/STATUTE BECOMES NULL AND
VOID. THE CHARTER IS SUPREME. You have every
right to move freely around any province and the country
of Canada. When reading your charter one must
remember it's not exactly word for word ok. There is a
lot of flexibility. Read the right of association, ask your
self who makes the decision on who you associate
with??
WELL YOU MAKE THE DECISION NOT SOME ONE
ELSE. IF SOME ONE TRYS TO ASSOCIATE YOU
WITH A GROUP OR LINK YOU TO ANYONE, THEY
VIOLATE YOUR CHARTER. remember to call em on it
when it happens.
You guys watch your backs out there and be safe, I'm
sitting at home with a shitty concussion, and fuck those
guys HELMETS SAVE LIVES. Anyone that says
different is a cunt. My predator kept my nogging on my
head.
RCMP out here will not mess around when the charter is
thrown on the table. If you guys get it together it will be
fine, show respect to the police, kindly point put your
rebuttals when referencing the charter. If you guys learn
the language along with the belief and conviction in your
own words they honestly will go away.
THE CANADIAN CHARTER OF RIGHTS AND
FREEDOMS.
Under no circumstances do you mention any stupid
freeman on the land shit or some idiotic sovereign
movement. If the police bring that bullshit up remind
them they just violated your freedom of association, do it
nicely ok. I hope you guys do well out there, peace.

Longboard mountain surfing a 'disaster' waiting to
happen

CBC 1 hour 55 minutes ago
RCMP are asking the public to keep an eye out for thrill-
seeking skateboarders in the Annapolis Valley.

Police have concerns that longboard riders are risking
too much, illegally cruising down hills on busy roads at
speeds of up to 70 km/h.

As the name implies, longboards are long skateboards,
commonly used for cruising, downhill carving or just
getting around.

One video posted to YouTube earlier this month shows a
group of three longboarders weaving their way down the
steep hill near the Canning look-off in the Annapolis
Valley.

Another video shows skaters speeding down the Black
Rock Road on the North Mountain between the
Annapolis Valley and the Bay of Fundy.

A quick search on YouTube turns up videos of people
longboarding on steep roadways right across the
province.

Jenn Slaunwhite, who lives north of Berwick, right at the
top of the mountain along Highway 360, has serious
safety concerns.

I was kind of shocked actually because its seriously
dangerous, especially our road here because its very
steep and the turns are hairpin. So when I [found out]
they were doing it here, I was kind of shocked. Its not a
safe thing to do, she said.

Slaunwhite said her fear is the longboarders may lose
control and cross into oncoming traffic

This is a notoriously bad road anyway thats my fear
that a car would come, not see them coming, or if
they lost control. It could be a terrible tragedy, she said.

Recently, while Slaunwhite was on her way down the
mountain, she stopped to talk to one of the boarders.

I saw two boys and they were walking their boards back
up. I basically just said, I want you to consider how
dangerous this is, not only for you consider how I
would feel or somebody driving would feel if we came
around the bend and did not see you, she said.

He just said Yeah, yeah, and then as I was driving
away he said, My dad brings me here.

Const. Blair MacMurtery, with Kings District RCMP, said
at speeds of 70 km/h, a helmet offers little protection.

Youve got to consider those inclines, a skateboard not
having the opportunity for breaks and fear of all the
other unknowns the other vehicles, obstructions in
the road, a rock, a stick, even a wild animal. I mean, it
just spells disaster, he said.

He said not only is it dangerous, but also illegal.

"Under section 172 of the Motor Vehicle Act it's illegal for
anyone to roller skate or skateboard on a roadway, said
MacMurtery.

If caught, longboarders could face fines of $147.70 for
the first offence.

MacMurtery said if anyone sees someone heading up a
steep hill with a longboard to give police a call so they
can intervene before anyone gets hurt.

I get the thrill and I get the challenge but what I dont
get is the danger, said Slaunwhite.
