Hats off to the R.D.

Kudos to the Regional District for standing strong on C.O.S. issue.

Dear editor,

Bravo, Regional District of Mount Waddington for telling it like it is regarding  “Conservation” on the North Island!

I know there are dozens of wild animal calls each year.  “Conservation” has not only “not attended”, but had no intention of doing so. Some calls are for injured animals that need to be euthanized due to injuries. Perhaps another letter addressed to the Honorable Terry Lake suggest his Ministry eliminate the “lone Conservation Officer’s” job on the North Island completely.

Leave a bear trap or two, and let the RCMP deal with wild animal calls that they’ve been dealing with all along. My hat’s off for all our North Island RCMP detachments for going above and beyond the call of duty!

I’d rather my tax dollars go to them, than someone who really is an “invisible, endangered” species.
