    Default Cattle guards

    I found this on Facebook and even if it is only partly true it is a great read.

    You will love this one, I haven't stop laughing yet. For those of you who don't know , cattle guards are horizontal steel rails placed at fence openings, in dug-out places in the roads adjacent to highways (sometimes across highways), to prevent cattle from crossing over that area. For some reason the cattle will not step on the "guards," probably because they fear getting their feet caught between the rails. A few months ago, Prime Minister Trudeau, received and was reading a report that there were over 100,000 cattle guards in Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba . The ranchers had protested his proposed changes in grazing policies, so he ordered the Minister of the Agriculture to fire half of the "cattle" guards immediately! Before the Ministers of Agriculture could respond and presumably try to straighten Prime Minister Trudeau out on the matter, Deputy Prime Minister Chrystia Freeland intervene with a request that...before any "cattle" guards were fired, they be given six months of retraining. 'Times are hard,' said Chrystia Freeland it's only fair to the cattle guards and their families be given six months of retraining! ' And these two people are running our country, Passed on to you without further comment... I CAN'T STOP LAUGHING - - - - OH LORD HELP US!!!!

    I have read this and if I didn't know better I would almost believe it is true.

    MNR tossed lumber " cattle guards" in ditches along areas of Hwy 17 in the Wawa area where moose were thick as thieves. First moose I hit was in '87 coming down grade around Old Woman Bay.
