Closing Letter – Quesnel Range
On June 25, 2002, the Board received a complaint from a rancher who lives south of Quesnel. The complainant owns and leases land on both sides of West Fraser Road.
The complainant’s neighbour (the licensee) holds a grazing permit for part of the West Fraser Road right-of-way, including the part that bisects the complainant’s owned and leased property. Under the terms of the grazing permit, the licensee’s cattle are permitted to graze in the road right-of-way for two weeks each spring. The complainant’s fence separates his private property from the road right-of-way. According to the complainant, the licensee’s bulls knock down the fence and breed with his cows.
