Call to Action

This video by photographer John E. Marriott is only 8 minutes long and  gives a first-hand account of grizzly hunt realities in B.C., from someone who knows the issue very well.

Taking action is easy:

1. Learn more about BC Grizzly Bears’ lives and the challenges that they face, click here

2.  Talk to friends, neighbours and others that you meet about the importance of ending the grizzly trophy hunt. Surprisingly, many people are not even aware that killing Grizzly Bears in twice yearly hunts even happens in British Columbia.  You can help spread awareness – this will make a difference.

 3.  Call your MLA – ask them where they stand on the grizzly hunts and let them know that this is a provincial issue that needs to end now!

During this transition time, we can be communicating with our political allies to keep the grizzly hunt top of mind.  One way to do this is to send thank you or congratulations cards, by surface mail, to the NDP and Green leaders, plus to any MLAs with whom you feel connected.

A simple message could read:

Dear ______________.

Congratulations on working hard to form a government that serves British Columbians.  I campaigned on your behalf and am excited for what is to come in our province. Top of mind are the upcoming grizzly hunts, which open August 15 2017 for the Fall and April 1 2018 for the Spring hunt.

You promised to end the grizzly hunts, a decision which the majority of British Columbians applaud.  Please take immediate action on this promise.

With just the swipe of a pen, it is one of the easiest promises to keep!

    Thank you for your efforts to end this hunt. Very concise and well said. Like many people I have signed petitions and done what I could to oppose this but the government has just ignored the overwhelming majority of voters in this province.for years now. Very frustrating and I feel the protest must be ramped up. Has the NDP come out with a position on the grizzly hunt, I am not sure? They certainly have not been very vocal on this issue. I will write to my MLA and the premier to express my opposition.


    1. Thanks very much for your comments, James and for writing to your MLA and the premier. Now is the time to keep the pressure on, working up to the general election. The NDP have not come out with a statement yet. I’m in close communication with my MLA as well on this issue. Keep up the good work. Many people are coming together for the Grizzly Bears and we’re not going to give up!
