Has anyone ever had a pleasant experience dealing with Rideau Valley Conservation? The torment these people put innocent people through who are following rules is unacceptable. They are in combat mode the minute you question the reasoning behind their supposed logic. They are intimidating and bullies. We pay taxes and should not be treated this way. Their reputation has been deplorable for years, and speaking to the “Director” was one of the worst experiences I have had in a very long time. We all try to work in unison to keep all natural habitat safe. Rules obviously apply for some and not for others. To see what is happening in some areas in a flood plain by the water where mansions are being built is a bit questionable, don’t you think? Obviously none of them are trained in how to deal with the public in a respectful way. Most are uneducated when it comes to the Rideau system and the rules change every time you talk to someone in their office. Avoid them if you can people!!!
