BC bans grizzly hunting effective immediately

The B.C. government launched a consultation process regarding regulations to support sustenance hunting.

"He tabled the Wildlife Amendment Act multiple times and stood as a lone voice in the legislature against the B.C. Liberals who actively supported grizzly trophy hunting and the B.C. NDP who would not take a position".

He said the province also hopes to promote grizzly bear viewing programs, giving residents and visitors the opportunity to view the bears in their natural habitat.

The ban also ends all grizzly bear hunting in the coastal region known as the Great Bear Rainforest.

"We hope that this announcement will be followed with a comprehensive ecosystem based approach to wildlife management because we can not continue to perpetuate the slow, methodical extirpation of native species in BC". I think it's a no-brainer to focus instead on bear-viewing.

Under the new rules, it's illegal to hunt grizzlies for sport, when an animal is killed for its parts - the head, paws or hide - and not its meat. "The minority government and a governing agreement signed by the B.C. NDP and B.C. Greens have allowed us to take a stronger position and we commend the government's bold announcement today".

First Nations will still be able to harvest grizzly bears pursuant to Aboriginal rights for food, social, or ceremonial purposes, or treaty rights. According to the poll, almost 80 per cent of women polled said they approved.

In the new year, the B.C. government plans on moving forward in discussing renewed wildlife management. "The government needs to be congratulated for this".

The ban came less than a month after the province's ban on trophy hunting of grizzlies came into effect.

The public opinion polling firm Insights West surveyed 817 B.C. adults in an online survey in late August, and found that 74 per cent of British Columbians want a total ban on grizzly hunting, with just 19 per cent wanting the hunt to continue. We will celebrate progress along the way and work to ensure species like grizzly bears and wild pacific salmon have the resilient ecosystems they need to thrive into the future.

Said Scott Ellis, executive director of the Guide Outfitters Association of B.C.: "It is a sad day when we move away from science-based decisions".
