Target: The BC Government – Premiers Office
Petition Background (Preamble):
Hunters and outdoorsmen have long been the true conservationists ?in Canada, North America, and the world. The money spent by Hunters and Outdoorsmen and the true care for how wildlife is managed properly is surpassed by no group.?
Several lobby groups have attempted to pressure and persuade the BC government (among others) to end sport hunting. Sport hunting is a very useful and important tool in wildlife management and no group is more passionate about wildlife and proper management than outdoorsmen and the hunting community. These lobby groups have targetted the BC Grizzly bear hunt in an attempt to eventually end all sport hunting. ? ???
Game management is important to all groups of outdoor recreationalists, tourits, outdoorsmen, and the future generations in Canada, North America, and the world. The endless projects and financial support for wildlife management by outdoorsmen have led the way to create stable and supporting management practices.? (Interesting, we need to ask the Alberta Trophy Hunters of Grizzlies what happened in their province when hunt closed 2006?)Human impact will continue to provide challenges to managing wildlife properly ( we agree!). This petition is created to show the numbers of people who truly support proper wildlife management and who feel that the BC grizzly hunt should not be cancelled due to pressure from Lobby groups whose interests do not lie in proper or sustainable wildlife management.
Petition: Our Petition:
Please continue to support effective wildlife management practices. This is a show of support to continue the BC Grizzly bear hunt as well as all sport hunting as a means of wildlife management and conservation.?
