Activists Uniting For The Benefit of Animals

Like a Facebook Page to help block Sunday Hunting in Nova Scotia

MISSION:    TO BLOCK THE PROPOSED AMENDMENT TO BILL-87 THE WILDLIFE ACT FROM PASSING WHICH WOULD ALLOW SUNDAY HUNTING.

 

Please help Nova Scotian Citizens who are trying to stop their government from allowing hunting on Sunday’s.  (Go to their Facebook Site Here. )   They know that with the current lack of awareness of animal consciousness and the general lack of understanding and compassion for animals in Canada that they can not stop hunting.  However these Canadian Citizens are desperately seeking to keep the one day of peace they currently enjoy.

  • One day of peace and refuge and quiet.
  • One day where they do not have to bear witness to the cruelty of hunting, to hear the horrible gun shots and to know that animals are being killed and suffering.
  • One day on Sunday where they can take their dog for a walk and not worry about them being in the cross fire of guns and the cruelty of hunting activities.

 

This is their write up posted on their Facebook Site: “Say No To Sunday Hunting in Nova Scotia”

 

 

NS Liberal Natural Resources Critic ANDREW YOUNGER has purposed to allow SUNDAY HUNTING in Nova Scotia. By liking this page, you agree that the decision is WRONG and Nova Scotians should NOT be allowed to hunt on Sundays. Such hunting would limit outdoor enthusiast’s ability to safely take part in recreational activities everyday of the week. Say NO to Sunday hunting and share this site with your friends.

Bill No. 87 – Wildlife Act (amended) – Andrew Younger (Lib)
This Bill amends the Wildlife Act and provides that where a Saturday and the following Monday are prescribed as part of the open season for hunting big game, the Sunday between is deemed to be part of the open season. It also allows the holder of a big game hunting license to hunt on a Sunday during the open season and to transport or possess a firearm or bow in a wildlife habitat on a Sunday during the open season.
