The current issue of Canoe Focus sets out the BCU's "policies and beliefs of how Canoe England sees the wider public use of our waterways being processed".
I think most of us here would agree with the ideas expressed.
It calls on the government to develop "an integrated package of measures to remove policies and practices" which prevent general access to inland waterways by canoeists.
I have looked at it closely, but I can't see any statement of what Canoe England is going to do to bring about the changes they advocate.
Actions speak louder than words, both for Canoe England and for individual canoeists.
No change will occur until we stop talking and start taking action.
