From the Maple Ridge News in British Columbia:
The presentation of a petition by Pacific Wild with over half a million signatures calling for stronger restrictions on B.C. wolf hunting coincided with the start of the fall session on Monday – ahead of the group’s extended B.C. Supreme Court battle, which is expected to be back in court later this month.
The petition, with 505,448 signatures as of Oct. 4, asks the B.C. Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations and Rural Development to reverse a controversial wolf hunt that was put in place in 2015 and was later extended to 2021. The ministry is seeking approval to extend the order another five years to 2026.
