Australians: Tell the BC Government to Ban Grizzly Bear Trophy Hunting

This petition had 10,236 supporters

On May 9th, 2017, British Columbians will vote in a provincial election. On this day, those voters have a brilliant chance to stop the trophy hunting of grizzly bears in BC, as the New Democratic Party has vowed to end the hunt if elected. But the province's current party, the BC Liberals have further stated their support for this hunt despite the polls, the science and the ethics pointing to the brutal nature of killing grizzly bears for sport.

It has recently been proven that grizzly bear viewing is up to 12 times more profitable to the province that bear hunting and according to Destination BC's data, Australians are the 4th most numerous nationality to visit the province with over 20,000 of us entering British Columbia in January of 2017. Therefore, us Aussies have the power to stand up for bears. We have the power to tell Christy Clarke and the BC Liberals that tourism to their province will be boycotted until the hunt is ended.

Please, take a moment to sign this petition and to vow that you will boycott bringing our Australian tourist dollars to British Columbia until grizzly bears are legally protected from the greedy government and their horrible killing of these magnificent animals.
