SNAP SHOTS: (Vol.2: EXTRA Edition: April 11th 2013)

This “Extra” edition of SNAP SHOTS is to let you know that this morning hosted a private briefing on the controversial issue of the Algonquins of Ontario Land Claim negotiations. Several Chapter presidents and others participated in person in our offices and by phone. Bob Valcov acted as facilitator.

The briefing was provided to us by Mr. Brian Crane, lead negotiator for the Crown of the Province of Ontario, and by Dr. Ronald Doering, lead negotiator for the Crown of Canada. This was followed by a free-wheeling, often spirited discussion. There was plenty of opportunity to ask questions and to express concerns about the impacts the Agreement will have on wildlife and on hunting. The meeting also served to dispel many of the myths surrounding these proceedings. It was agreed to keep the lines of communication open and several suggestions made by SCI folks were noted for consideration in further development of the Draft Agreement in Principle. This was a very special opportunity for SCI-Canada; continuing to punch above our weight.

Snap Shots goes to SCI-Canada and Canadian chapter leadership on a weekly basis. It is also available at the “News” page of the SCI-Canada web site.  We include relevant media releases from provincial governments where we have chapters, as well as from the federal government.  Also included are media articles from around the world that touch on hunting and Canada.  Some of these stories may prompt you and your chapter to take action; some may provide material for your newsletter; and some may just be of passing interest. Your comments are always appreciated. www.sci-canada.ca
