Four people, who allegedly participated in a protest against a no-snowmobiling rule in Terra Nova National Park on Feb. 13, have been charged. Six charges in total were laid under the Canada National Parks Act. Three were for damaging and destroying flora in a park and the other three were for operating an over-snow vehicle in a park without a permit. Four additional charges have been laid under the Criminal Code for obstructing a person making a legal seizure in a park. Convictions may result in maximum fines of $25,000 and the forfeiture of vehicles or other equipment used in the commission of an offence. Charlottetown, Newfoundland, where the majority of protesters are based, is surrounded by Terra Nova Park. The protesters argue they should be allowed to establish a corridor to drive snowmobiles through the park.
