             I will use my influence with other snowmobilers to promote responsible conduct.

       4.   I will respect other people’s property and rights.
       5.   I will lend a helping hand when I see someone in distress.
       6.   I will make myself and my snowmobile available to assist in search-and-rescue operations.
       7.   I will not interfere with or harass hikers, skiers, snowshoers, people who are ice fishing or participating in other
             winter sports. I will respect their rights to enjoy recreation facilities.
       8.   I will know and obey all federal, provincial and local rules regulating the operation of snowmobiles in areas 
             where I use my snowmobile.
