    Some of the International organizations opposed to the consumptive use of wildlife, such as the World Wildlife Fund, National Wildlife Federation, PETA, the Patagonia Foundation, the Tides Foundation, and the Sea Sheperd Society, can issue tax receipts for donated money and then use that money to fund other non-profit organizations.
    ^^^^^^^^^
    I have always thought the original donors are unaware of where their donations are going, many are going to an unintended use and in fact many may be gun owners and hunters themselves. It seems that its a fine line between hunter and conservationist and someone should figure out a way to inform the donors of the nefarious use of their funds.

    Great post Kelly, I'm pretty sure if you don't get it by now you never will, but you could try to go to a R2 meeting and ask their President to unravel the mystery for you. Make sure he speaks sssllloooowwwwllly.

They even went so far as to allow a husband and wife to be elected as Vice President and Treasurer. A move which although not disallowed constitutionally is in my and others opinions is a very bad visual after the fiasco of a pervious administration and the wanton waste of almost $400,000. Mr. Zuckerman was told he was volunteering and working to much and it portrays "others" a very poor light.. The time has now come to start looking seriously at a new origination to represent BC hunters and shooters and have the balls to stand up for their membership. Although we were hopeful for change it is now clear the BCWF is not the organization to take hunters anglers and shooters into the 21st Century.
    I agree with you. Constitutionally there is nothing wrong with it but perceptionally it looks wrong. There was some discussion by the membership at the time. There is always a possibility for things to go sideways as things could be blown out of proportion at the slightest question. Unfortunately it was the best option for the members to vote for the best interest of the BCWF. A resolution will have to be put forth for 2020 to create a bylaw preventing this in the future.
