Northern Ontario needs to Control its own Natural Resources

This petition had 1,420 supporters

The citizens of Northern Ontario demand control over their fish and wildlife. We demand the creation of a  Northern Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry. Northerners would operate this Ministry and the revenues collected would remain in Northern Ontario. This current system of government cronyism has proven not to work. Too often, MPPs are named to this Ministry with little or no experience regarding Ontario's wildlife. These same people then make unwise decisions on our fishing and hunting laws (for example the spring bear hunt).  Currently, our fisheries are in shambles, poaching is on the rise, and we have a system that encourages too many predators. Because of poor policymaking by politicians, (who have probably never even held a fishing rod) many family fishing and hunting lodges are being forced to close, and the average citizens have seen their fishing and hunting limits decline annually.

It is time to have a separate Ministry of Natural Resources that is operated by Northern Ontario, which has its own mandate. It's time to force our Northern Politicians to fight for this cause and demand action on this issue that affects so many in Northern Ontario. 

It time we force Queen's Park to listen and to create this Northern Ministry.
