    If the Alberta was so great, lake country BC wouldn’t be overrun by vacationing Albertans.
    If it cant be done with one shot, it shouldn't be done.

    No more ADHD... back on topic.

    Of course "Sportfishing" is going to be eliminated.

    Which is why I've been warning for decades that it is imperative that licensed hunters and fishers have the terms "Sport" and "Recreational" eliminated from the legislation, replace it with nomenclature that attaches itself to legal protections provided by Our weak ass Charter.

    If people vote in NDP this fall then it’s all over, fishing and hunting…

    Agreed. Sport and recreational are terms that don’t gather much support, in certain geographic areas.

    Some states (Alaska?) recognize “sustenance” fisheries.

    Trust me all the dumb ass union boot lickers will still be voting for the NDP and sure there's more than a few that are here on HBC .

    I was born and raised in BC. I moved to Alberta 15 years ago. I'm now a proud Albertan, it's pretty awesome. I'm glad.I'm not a BC'er anymore and would never want tp be one again.
