LNHS Canine Committee Summary Report

The LHNS Canine Trail Committee has been active since February 2011. The 2011/12 Salmar/Sunshine Canine Pilot Trail was endorsed by general membership vote in November 2011, and adopted as an ongoing canine trail at the March 2012 LHNS Annual General Meeting.

Based on predominantly positive feedback and requests for specific improvements, the LHNS Canine Committee was asked by the executive to propose a canine trail for the 2012/2013 season.

The committee proposed that the current trail be extended to Tom’s Cabin and include one or both of Skyview and Sentinel loops.

At the Dec. 4, 2012 general meeting, the LHNS executive reiterated its support for the current 800 metre Salmar/Sunshine Canine Trail, and reported that it did not support the Canine Committee proposals for improvement. No other proposals were brought forward at that time.

In 2013/2014 there was a new proposal which was voted down by the members of LHNS.  That proposal may be seen here.
