Oh boy, yet another one seeking a huge pay-out due to Canadian Government folly.

This is getting embarrassing. Our government and security agencies conspire to deny someone rights they should be accorded under our charter of rights and freedoms and by world court conventions.

How stupid were these government entities to willingly hand these people over to Americans and Guantanamo without thinking it would come back on a civilized nation purporting to still believe and adhere to the rule of law and conventions of civilized behaviour?

Default Grizzly hunting banned in BC

Grizzly bear hunting is banned in BC immediately.


Quote:
British Columbia bans grizzly hunt | Metro Vancouver

British Columbia has ended all grizzly bear hunting for good.

Monday's announcement comes four months after the NDP vowed it would be the last season to kill B.C.'s largest land animal for trophies body parts or furs kept as souvenirs although it allowed them to be hunted for meat.

Now the NDP announced it is immediately banning hunting grizzlies entirely.

"Our government promised that we would listen to the people of B.C. and that their input would be taken into account," Doug Donaldson, Minister of Forests, Lands, Natural Resource Operations and Rural Development, told reporters by telephone from Hazelton. " It's abundantly clear that most British Columbians do not support the killing of grizzly bears.

...... After fall consultations, he said 78 per cent of respondents across B.C. wanted a full ban. That's a similar figure to an Insights West opinion poll commissioned by anti-hunting groups in August, which found even most hunters want grizzly trophy hunting stopped.........

From the Globe & Mail daily Political Briefing newsletter:

Quote:
The Kremlin-controlled news channel RT is finding its way into Canadians' homes in part because the network is paying some of this country's largest TV providers.

Sources familiar with the agreements told the Globe and Mail the Russian government is so intent on using RT to spread its worldview that it is paying cable and satellite operators a reversal of the usual arrangement between networks and providers.

Taber's literacy program, funded by the Alberta government at about $180,000 annually, is tailored to the growing number of Low German-speaking Mennonites in southern Alberta, a migration wave that's boosting the population of fading farms towns.

They're coming to Canada for jobs and opportunity.

Until it's not because some Native group wants to do it.

I doubt it. The native clans are just as gung-ho for putting an end to grizzly hunts and have been advocating strongly for this ban as well. The only people who have their noses out of joint about the ban are a few trophy hunters and mainly the people in the Guide Outfitters Association of BC. The natives are suggesting some helpful alternatives and assistance for the guide outfitters to add grizzly viewing to their services to take the place of grizzly killing.

If there's one thing Native groups in BC can agree on, it's not agreeing on anything. I shant hold my breath.


That being said, I wouldn't hunt them even if you could. Grizzlies are way too cool. Now those forest rats called deer on the other hand...

Forest rats? LOL

I like deer. Sometimes when camping they've come into my campsite. I have a nice little chat with them. They look at me sideways and then leap away.

I don't think I could shoot one.
