So.... we're playing our game of motorcycle tag... and i thought it would be a good idea to tag the matsqui institution here in abby....
Off the main road, there is one sign that says "now entering a federal institution. all vehicles are subject to search"... and another sign about pets of some sort... i figure i'm all good... there's also some "no tresspassing" signs off to the side... but really pointed at the trees... as if they don't want anyone going off into the trees... understandable
so i ride up to the front gate of the complex, take my picture... and a prison cop shows up:
"uhh, what do you think you're doing?"
-"taking a random picture?
"who are you?"
-"i'm a nobody. just a random guy taking a picture of my bike here"
"i find that hard to believe" then into her walkie talkie: "<prison jargon> at the front gate"
long story short, i get questioned by 2 prison cops for about 15 mins... they wanna know if i'm from the media, they write down all my info, check if i have a criminal record... etc etc etc...
so... apparently... the federal institution is off limits... and noone is allowed anywhere near that... even though the only "no trespassing" signs up front are pointed at some fucking trees...
and in the end, they made me delete my picture too... so all that trouble for nothing!
edit: link... first brown sign is about vehicle searches... second one is about pets... the white sign that's off to the side is about trespassing
