  • This Vegan Liberal MP Has Pissed Off Canada’s Outdoorsmen with a New Animal Rights Bill
    April 26, 2016

    Next month, on May 9, Erskine-Smith is scheduled to present the second reading of the controversial bill C-246.

    “The Modernizing Animals Protection Act could mean fines as high as $10,000 or 18 months in prison for storing a catch in a livewell or baiting a hook with a minnow, nightcrawler, or leech.
    Sopuck believes Erskine-Smith is hiding his true agenda—the elimination of all animal use in the country.”

  • PROVINCE ADVISES TEMPORARY FISHING RESTRICTIONS IMPLEMENTED IMMEDIATELY

    April 26, 2016

    PROVINCE ADVISES TEMPORARY FISHING RESTRICTIONS IMPLEMENTED IMMEDIATELY TO PROTECT SPAWNING WALLEYE IN LAKE DAUPHIN

    Manitoba Conservation and Water Stewardship advises that temporary conservation measures have been put in place to protect walleye populations in Lake Dauphin and its tributaries this spring during the walleye spawning period.

    The walleye population in Lake Dauphin has been recovering with the continued support of Indigenous peoples, recreational anglers and commercial fishers. Additional efforts are necessary to protect walleye during this critical part of their lifecycle and are part of efforts to ensure a sustainable Dauphin Lake walleye population.

    The temporary measures take effect immediately and will be in place until the completion of the walleye spawning period. During this period, no commercial or recreational fishing is allowed but Aboriginal rights holders may continue to harvest all species of fish by angling only and must release any walleye between 45 and 70 centimetres in length.

    These steps reflect the department’s commitment to improve walleye stocks and make decisions based on science, with input from First Nations and Métis communities. When Manitoba Conservation and Water Stewardship determines the spring walleye spawning has been completed, temporary conservation measures will be lifted.
