Allowing trophy hunting on First Nations land ignores the opinions of most British Columbians

Price for backing backwardness

An open letter to Steve Thomson, Minister of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations.

An open letter to Steve Thomson, Minister of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations.

Once again, your government policies regarding the licensing of trophy hunting on native lands has come to the attention of British Columbians.

You continue to ignore the opinions of 86 per cent of citizens who oppose all trophy hunting in this province.

You ignore the morality around this issue, and the rights of native people in B.C. trying to preserve grizzly habitat and populations on their lands.

This is 2013, Mr. Thompson. Licensing the slaughter of wild animals for pleasure is absolutely not acceptable anymore. Your government’s legacy on this issue will be remembered as unprogressive and unresponsive.

The price for backwardness will be paid at the ballot box. Citizens won’t forget your position on this important issue in the next election.
