WINNIPEG, Manitoba — A new group has formed to represent what it calls the majority voice of Alberta’s outdoor enthusiasts. The Outdoor Recreation Council of Alberta (ORCA) launched Thursday to represent the interests of those involved in non-motorized activities on crown land.

The move comes weeks after users of off-highway vehicles (OHV’s) banded together to oppose the provincial government’s plan to exclude motorized vehicles from using the planned Castle Provincial Park and Castle Wildland Provincial Park.

“The vast majority of Albertans who like to go for a walk, like to go skiing, don’t necessarily belong to a club, but love the outdoor space,” said Albi Sole, spokesperson for ORCA. “We have been absent from the discussions.”
