    If they are wildlife management areas to begin with I think you werent allowed to be in there hunting anyway.
    dog walkers wont be able to let their dogs off leash to harass wildlife.

    Thats how I read it.

    You can hunt Pitt marsh, and boundary bay. Possibly others, never looked into them.

    Typical government ambiguous legislation.Boundary bay is a wildlife management area and requires dogs to be leashed but never do it during hunting season.The southern marshes cannot fathom the reasoning there but hey we are dealing with the terminally stupid right me up and lets go to court. Believe Federal regs. state I have to endeavour to retrieve all waterfowl ,,,,

    This must be wrong. Roberts Bank? Having a dog out there when hunting should be allowed surely??

    Sounds like fake news
    It takes an act of god to get the wildlife act opened up for review, let alone changes.
    Change the list of areas controlled by the act can happen anytime.
    Never say 'whoa' in the middle of a mud hole.

    I wrote the South Coast Conservation Lands manager and received this reply which clarifies things for hunting. TL/DR we can still use dogs for hunting.

    Thank you for your email. As mentioned in the News 1130 article to which you referred, the Wildlife Act Wildlife Management Area Use and Access Regulation has been amended to include all 11 Wildlife Management Areas in schedules 1, 2, and 4 of the regulation. Schedule 4 states the following:

    Dogs must be on leash in designated wildlife management areas
    4 (1)A person commits an offence if the person enters a wildlife management area described in Schedule 4 with a dog that is not
    (a)under the direct control of a person, and
    (b)restrained by a leash not longer than 2 metres.
    (2)This section does not apply to a person who enters the wildlife management area in order to engage in lawful hunting.


    As stated by the regulation, the “dogs must be on leash” regulation does not apply to a person who enters the WMA in order to engage in lawful hunting. In other words, off leash dogs may continue to be used for hunting in south coast WMAs (e.g., Roberts Bank, Boundary Bay, South Arm Marshes, and Pitt-Addington Marsh WMAs)..

    I'm also in communication with original news author to clarify his article too.
