Cross-country ski trails in Laurentians at risk

On the Jackrabbit trails.jpgThe Laurentians are a great place to ski - with hundreds and hundreds of kilometres of trails.

Many of those trails also have historical significance for the region.

But some cross-country enthusiasts fear they're at risk from land development.

Over the past 30 years or so, the Laurentians have shifted from a place people in the city would spend weekends and vacations --- to a place where they live permanently. The CBC's Marika Wheeler has been looking into the story and joins Shari Okeke from our Quebec City studio.
