  1. Point taken. Also, the indians are not beholding to the same rules as non indians...in fishing or hunting. They seem to exempt to the rules. So, they can shoot as many as they want, any time.
  2. Thanks for the ionfo but, as I linked, it does not come into effect until October 2025
  3. Yadda yadda yadda...the expert on everything speaks. Thank F*ck we don[t have to listen.
  4. It is open. For Christs sake, read the friggen lnks and background. Total fabricated BS. As usual. Hunters are but Parks Canada is Federal. This whole issue is way over 6 years old...they had top start something back in 2018. ....slow news day brings it up.
  5. Not being gun aware is "White Buffalo, will use restricted semi-automatic assault-style rifles to dispatch the deer. And they will be equipped with suppressors, or silencers, using .223-calibre ammunition with extended magazines holding up to 30 rounds, he said." an AR-15? Your BBC link also said "The ban is effective immediately but there will be a two-year amnesty period for law-abiding gun owners to comply. " "Prohibition on assault-style firearms New maximum thresholds for muzzle energy (greater than 10,000 Joules) and bore diameter (20 mm bore or greater) are also in place. Any firearm that exceeds them is now prohibited. A Criminal Code amnesty period is currently in effect to October 30, 2025" https://www.publicsafety.gc.ca/cnt/cntrng-crm/frrms/index-en.aspx I am not a gun owner or gun aficionado but I would think that if a contract was let, it would have to comply with present Canadian Law, as all contracts are obliged to do.
  6. That was all done. The locals and indigenous did not or could not do it. Hence, it was officially started in 2018 and they were given more chances and the locals and indigenous failed again. Parks Canada is not provincial.
  7. If no one in Canada could fulfill the contract I guess, so they got someone that could. I am pretty sure they did not request what arms to use. Bottom line is that this has been going on for a very long time and parks Canada tried to get locals in indigenous bit they did not do the job so,like everything else, they contract out. Like I said, I have been there. I asked you where you got the AR-15 information. I read the links and did not see it. It is interesting that this has become a story. There is the same issue way up on the Queen Charlotte Islands (oh, sorry Haida Gwaii) for many decades. Anyone can go and hunt up there. There is no bag limit but the deer are still a problem.
  8. Exactly how is allowing businesses selling beer, wines and, liquors a waste of tax payers money??? You can in the US too. You can in Quebec too.
  9. Read the links...it explains it there. They even tell you how many have been shot and what they are doing wit the meet. Seems the locals and the indigenous are not shooting enough so, to solve the problem, they have to hire shooters. The locals and indigenous that are complaining are not doing enough so, like always, the government steps in. The Parks department has been working on this since 2018. Read the links and understand the history (which is something you always tell others to do) and you will not be such a drama queen All the answers and reasons are there.
  10. How?? This was and is an ongoing program to cull deer that were damaging the island environment and ecosystem. I have been ion the island and the deer are a huge problem. Read the link and become aware. https://parks.canada.ca/agence-agency/bib-lib/rapports-reports/~/link.aspx?_id=B84E6A3DAAEB4A90B765F4388D7B1C4A&_z=z https://coastalconservation.ca/projects/sidney-island-ecosystem-restoration-project/ https://www.timescolonist.com/local-news/parks-canada-defends-12m-sidney-island-deer-kill-ecological-restoration-8808318
  11. Did you read the link? It is a cull to prevent the further environmental problems caused by the deer. Where did you get the use of the AR-15 Sydney Island is 8.5 sq kms. The indigenous were given rights but for some reason or other, they were not able to accomplish the task themselves. "Since 2018, Parks Canada has been working with partners—including the W̱SÁNEĆ Leadership Council (representing Tsartlip (tsart-lip) First Nation and Tseycum (say-come) First Nation ), Tsawout (tsay-out) First Nation, Pauquachin (paw-kwuh-chin) First Nation , Sidney Island residents, Islands Trust Conservancy , and the Province of British Columbia—to plan and implement a forest restoration strategy on SḰŦÁMEN (Sidney Island). This initiative is known as the Sidney Island Ecological Restoration Project, or SḰŦÁMEN QENÁȽ,ENEȻ SĆȺ. Together, project partners identified three key objectives: Restoring native vegetation and removing invasive plant species. Eliminating the invasive European fallow deer population. Sustainably managing native black-tailed deer."
  12. There are no winners. Look what has been going on in the past 75 years.
  13. You're right, the AI was responding to you! Thanks for pointing that out, and I'm glad you enjoyed the exchange. I'll have to keep a closer eye on my conversations to make sure I'm not getting you too defensive. LOL How arrogant are you to think you deserve to go through life with no one ever saying anything that you don’t agree with or like....oh wait, rhetorical question, we all know LOL
  14. I stand by my comment. It had nothing and now it has Israel. By decree. "On May 14, 1948, David Ben-Gurion, the head of the Jewish Agency, proclaimed the establishment of the State of Israel. U.S. President Harry S. Truman recognized the new nation on the same day...... Throughout 1947, the United Nations Special Commission on Palestine examined the Palestinian question and recommended the partition of Palestine into a Jewish and an Arab state. On November 29, 1947 the United Nations adopted Resolution 181 (also known as the Partition Resolution) that would divide Great Britain’s former Palestinian mandate into Jewish and Arab states in May 1948 when the British mandate was scheduled to end. Under the resolution, the area of religious significance surrounding Jerusalem would remain a corpus separatum under international control administered by the United Nations." https://history.state.gov/milestones/1945-1952/creation-israel
