The Pledge will be received by Justice for BC Grizzlies, and decision-makers Premier Clark, NDP Opposition Leader John Horgan and Green MLA Andrew Weaver. We are asking BC residents to sign our Pledge to keep the grizzly hunt high on the political radar leading up to the May 9/17 provincial election. By connecting with friends, family, members of your community and political candidates, we will be able to spread the word throughout the province that this brutal, unjust killing of grizzlies must end!
When you sign this pledge be assured your email information will not be shared publicly and will be held in confidence. We will send regular updates to those that wish them and also be periodically sharing our growing list of pledgers (voters) and their towns (ridings) with political candidates and the media.
If you wish to join our Team at Justice for BC Grizzlies please go to: https://justiceforbcgrizzlies.com/contact/ and you will be contacted by a volunteer.

Above the stone fireplace in the comfortable Saanich home, photos of grizzly bears are pinned in a casual collage.
Cubs are shown frolicking in the grass, a curious bear stands on his hind legs looking through a camera lens and, jarringly, at the top, is a massive grizzly lying lifeless in the grass, eyes closed, claws digging into the dirt, as two jubilant hunters smile into the camera.
The photo, typical of those found in hunting magazines that promote the chance to travel to Super, Natural B.C. to kill grizzles, provokes a visceral response among hunt opponents and a newly-formed group wants to harness that gut reaction.
Justice for B.C. Grizzlies is led by a small core of volunteers who, for years, have tried to end the trophy hunt by arguing the facts — such as the uncertainty of population numbers, studies that show bear viewing generates far more in visitor spending than bear hunting and — what should be the clincher for politicians, but, curiously seems to be ignored — polls clearly demonstrate that British Columbians are overwhelmingly against the hunt.
A gift to ALL! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aLpyFH1Y-aA&feature=youtu.be
A 46 minute long video and so well worth the view. We must really LISTEN carefully to Charlie Russell’s words and step up ourselves to tell the true story about grizzlies.
We must NOW take Charlie Russell’s life’s message to our politicians, candidates and voters with as much conviction, commitment and passion as he has shown all these years. Now in his mid-seventies, Charlie is still fighting for the grizzlies and we must fight along side him. We have to finally bring peace to our grizzlies in British Columbia and end the killing.
Once we end the killing of grizzlies in our backyard we can help grizzlies in other jurisdictions.
