    National Indigenous Day BCWF Reconciliation Dialogue

    A lot of people are curious and concerned about what reconciliation will look like when it comes to hunting, angling, access and conservation.

    This Zoom conversation is open to BCWF members and will be a sort of a town hall conversation between BCWF President Chuck Zuckerman and Indigenous Relations consultant Solomon Reece.

    I'm pretty sure we'll do more than one of these sorts of Zoom conversations because this is complex stuff and a lot of people will have lots of questions.

    We'd like a big turnout and we'd like lots of questions. We'd like the questions as early as possible because, given that this is complex stuff, somewhat new and constantly evolving we want to be prepared with good answers and good follow up questions.


    Here's the registration link (thanks for catching that Iron Noggin):

    ^^^^

    Believe me, we thought about that, but given that the future is coming regardless of what we do we figured we better just fire it up and deal with it.

    The truth is always friendly, right? It might not be convenient, but it's better than trying to respond to a challenge without accurate information.

    That applies to getting true info about the Indigenous side of the issue, but also accurate info about what BCWF members are thinking, feeling and wondering about as we go forward.

    BCWF needs to have working relations with Indigenous peoples, but we also need to pursue BCWF member goals, so we really need to have these conversations.

    Register.

    Send in questions.

    If you aren't a BCWF member join a BCWF club (you can join mine - North Shore Fish and Game, and get BCWF membership) or join as a direct member. Let us know your thoughts, concerns, goals and questions.

    I just heard on CKNW that some people are calling for cancellation of Canada Day in lieu of residential school victims.
    Then Mike Smyth quoted a chief of some band who said it should not be cancelled, but that Canada should come together and have a dialog about the past.
    Maybe there is hope.

    Maybe those who don't like Canada Day, should get the hell out of Canada!

    The range of solutions runs from complete assimilation of First Nations to complete exodus of non-Indigenous people after they've given back all the land and paid the back rent.

    There are lots of pretty reasonable positions in between. Register, submit the questions and we'll address them.

    We are all human beings. The sooner we can put aside the bullshit and talk to one another as fellow human beings, the sooner we will make progress. At least thats my view... I do not know shit though.

    Good call.

    Registration link is probably not available yet but I'll see about getting that cleared up today or tomorrow.

    You can contact Kimberly Kelly at kimberly.kelly@bcwf.bc.ca or me at rob@robchipman.net with questions.

    For that matter, just ask the questions here and I'll collect them.

    Registration link will be forthcoming.

    We want lots of feedback from members. Being aligned with members will be critical to establishing good Indigenous relations between BCWF and FNs, and we need to have good working relationships simply because FNs exert a great deal of influence over what we all like doing.

    Fantastic idea BCWF and Rob! Its so much better to engage, rather than just stick our heads in the sand and take the "wait and see what happens" approach. Lets be proactive.

    One question I would like to ask is: "How come most (or all) First Nations communities in BC do not report their harvest numbers, particularly for Moose, but for all species they harvest year round? And would they be open to the idea of starting to keep track of harvest statistics in each of their communities, and provide those stats to the Fish & Wildlife Branch so that they can incorporate those numbers with the rest of the province's harvest statistics?"

    Also, Rob did you get a chance to look into the question I asked about whether the BCWF got a response from the Auditor General about grazing leases from a few years ago?
