Wet weather prompts travel restriction removal

Recent rain and snow has improved conditions, allowing the province to lift all travel restrictions that had been put in place in an effort to prevent wildfires.

The province lifted the final restrictions, still in place for western Manitoba on Tuesday, after lifting restrictions in the east, late last week.

ATV riders are still being asked to be cautious as a matter of habit by using developed trails, ensure their ATV has a working spark arrestor, checking areas around the engine and the exhaust frequently and carrying a fire extinguisher, axe and shovel.

To report a wildfire call 911 or the T.I.P. line at 1-800-782-0076.
