AWA Speaks Out Against Legislation to Authorize the Establishment of Penned “Hunting” Farms in Alberta

April 1, 2011

Wild Lands Advocate article, April 2011 by Madeline Wilson.

“Once again, the provincial government has failed to consult with the public before changing legislation. Bill 11, the Livestock Diversity Amendment Act, includes changes that have the potential to transform the game farm industry, and leave us wondering, is it still considered “hunting” when the animals are kept in pens?…”

We have spectacular wilderness in Alberta, much of it under some form of protection. Every square millimetre of it has had to be fought for - will always have to be fought for, forever and ever. The struggle to retain and repair wilderness is conducted not just by a few individuals, but by large numbers of committed people, from all walks of life, all working in various ways toward the same end. We need to be grateful to all of them.
