A non-profit group working to end trophy hunting is not very happy with the provincial process to get feedback on hunting and trapping regulations.
Pacific Wild spokesperson Michaela Montaner says the Ministry of Forests’ online process locked people out, and wouldn’t let them access accounts or passwords.
Montaner says the feedback period during December is also counter-productive, with people focused on the holidays.
“Consider adding a second two weeks into January if they insist on doing the consultations in December, or moving it to another month entirely. Further to that, taking a little bit more care to advertise public feedback opportunities. The ministry was unavailable for media comment.”
She says online problems plagued users looking to register feedback both during the regular time-frame and again when it was extended to Jan. 31.
