I agree that atv's can be dangerous machines if miss used. I felt that the investigation failed to look into the extreme power and speed that many atv's have today. The investigation could have looked into the number of deaths that were on large atv's versus smaller lower powered atv's. Also there was no mention of how many of these deaths were alcohol related. I have used atv's for twenty years and never had one on its side or roll over. The one use now is a 325 Polaris AWD. It takes me anywhere I need to go as fast as I need to get there safely. I must agree with the manufacturers that most accidents are operator error. Any machine can be lethal if it is pushed beyond its limits.

I was more than surprised to watch your program last evening Sunday Oct 28/07 on what we import from China in regards to our food chain. here I was thinking "oh the box says made in canada" yes, the box not the contents!! After being careful all of my life in regards to what I serve my family and eat myself I'm still wondering why I got Colon Retal cancer. The part about the fish and when it was tested was an eye opener, we need to "wake up" before we all die from the foods we import!!

Thank-You for your program.
