Grizzly Bear Trophy Hunting Ban



Last summer, our government began a consultation process asking British Columbians for their opinions on grizzly bear trophy hunting. You responded with passion to protect these amazing animals from all forms of hunting. This overwhelming consensus will now protect the 15,000 grizzlies in this province. Yesterday morning, Minister Doug Donaldson and Minister George Heyman announced our government's full ban on grizzly bear hunting, with the exception of First Nations traditional rights and purposes.

Here is a link to further explain our decision on the ban:
