Extreme Park

How wonderful, Vernon in British Columbia wants to turn what was once a military training facility into a nature park. Only one catch though, the 56 hectares is still littered with explosives. Hmm, a park of natural selection! The land has been used by the military since 1942 and since that time a total of 8 residents have lost their lives due to mortar shells going kaboom. The Department of National Defence have no idea how much live munitions is still scattered or buried on the land but after a risk assessment the city plans to spend a year using technology (similar to an X-ray) to located the dangerous little sucker before opening it up to the public. Hmm, might want to get your insurance policies reassessed! Oh and did I happen to mention rattlesnakes? Seems they are in abundance too!
