Mayor writes on ‘scofflaw’ comment

In early March, Ottawa newspapers quoted me as saying ATV users were scofflaws. It was not my intention to label all ATV and OVR users as lawless. I intended the context to apply to a highly visible minority of people, who others and I regularly see ignoring prohibitions on ATV/OVR use on Almonte streets, on the unopened OVRT, and in Almonte and Pakenham parks.

It was not my intention to lump the majority of law-abiding and responsible ATV/OVR users under the scofflaw label. I regret that I may have offended some people.
