YouTube - Our Wildlife Heritage
Our crippled government is pushing through legislation that defies long standing policies of North American wildlife management and further and permanently damages the image of hunting and hunters in the province. As described by former AFGA president, Randy Collins in the Edmonton Journal, Bill 11 has passed second reading and is before a legislative committee, starting today, for debate and amendment.

licence, and a person shall not contravene any terms or conditions of the
The only reason to put this section in the act is to allow hunt farms, something some long-standing PC supporters having been pushing for decades. They just don't get it! They are out to destroy an important part of our Alberta heritage!
