Hello to all,it has been two years now since I first errr well almost three since the first petition I started with Liberal Party Member Shawn Lawlor and Leo Glavine and others took place.
I have been told that this will be in place for the 2015 hunting season and that it will be announced in april of next year regarding this.
Now in saying this and having invested a lot of time and energy it to making our province that same as the rest of the country and getting our hunters back in the woods and away from the television.
There appears to be a lot of opposition to this which is no surprise really from mostly people that have not seen twenty feet off a pedway in city limits which if you remember I promised to never ever hunt within city limits or the pedways of our province, this I pledge.
But to not be judgemental there has been a lot of criticism from the hunting variety regarding this as well.
Now just thinking about declining numbers and hunters who have to work five and six days per week and have to watch a hard rain Saturday blow through only to cause them to wait another week to hunt doe not seem fair to those individuals that have no vacation or paid time off to hunt through the weekdays to continue to enjoy an ever increasing costly way of life with less time to enjoy it.
We can fish(which I fully partake and enjoy),shop,buy alcohol and a car but cannot hunt anywhere in our province, what!!
I was very surprised to hear about this much opposition even from our hunting members yep the is correct!! and somewhat taken aback, as if it is good for one to enjoy a Sunday activity why not make it available for all to have the opportunity to do so and not limit them because they have a different lifestyle.
So I am asking once again for the support and calls or email to our Liberal Government to support all our hunting and outdoor enthusiasts and not let all the rest of Canada be ahead of our Province once again.
This will go ahead, and with our support it will be a well gained day for our hunting public.
As what better way to enjoy and enthrall our youth and keep our older generation in our great outdoors and to actually gain a privilege instead of giving one up.
Thank you everyone and yes there are a multitude of fors and against, but the end result is everything else in our Canada is getting done on Sunday so why is Nova Scotia the last again.
Respectively and the highest regards
