TrudeauLiberals cancel National Wetlands Conservation Fund

I have no problem with duck HUNTERS, who is the best damned environmentalist out there? The ones who know that what they hunt has to have habitat. And fund said habitat so they can continue HUNTING.

I know I've told you multiple times now, but I grew up with fishing and hunting. No shock that wetlands need preserved for hunters too.

:D

Looks maybe decieving, as this is a UN iniatiative it is not binding on any of the signature countries, more of a feel good effort, that governments can point to while they cut resources in other programs.

I read it. And realized, unless you are Third World country, there is no point to having your hand out for money.

It is decieving and NOW I'm disgusted with this whole fiasco. How much money can duck hunters have anyways? And I suspect they are a dying out breed themselves.

NOPE, this is awful.

Well, here it comes. All of a sudden, Trudeau is increasing duck stamp fees by 65%. He cancelled funding for the Wetlands Conservation Fund, and now he's asking duck hunters to pay the bill from their own pockets.

https://www.canada.ca/en/environment-cl ... -fees.html

And to top it all off, he's making sure that the lion's share of the increase goes to fund government, while a much smaller portion actually goes to habitat work via the Wildlife Habitat Canada fund. Trudeau's ministry gets nearly a 100% increase in revenue, while the actual work on the ground gets about a 50% increase to try to offset some of the losses from the cancellation of the NWCF. What a complete jackass he is!

Oh look!

https://www.castanet.net/edition/news-s ... htm#219980

The call of the wild is echoing through Tuesday's federal budget, which some environmental groups are calling a "game changer" for nature conservation across Canada.

The Liberals have earmarked $1.3 billion over five years to expand protected areas and help endangered and threatened species — a move that reflects its pledge to safeguard at least 17 per cent of Canada's land and inland waters by 2020.

"Canada is one of the most beautiful places on Earth," Finance Minister Bill Morneau said in his budget speech to the House of Commons. "It's up to all of us to help keep it that way."

The budget commits $500 million to a nature fund aimed at protecting sensitive ecosystems, expanding species protection and helping Indigenous groups play a role in conservation efforts. The initiative is expected to leverage an additional $500 million from the private sector and other levels of government.

Expanded measures to include Indigenous Peoples in the creation and management of protected areas is encouraging, said Valerie Courtois, director of the Indigenous Leadership Initiative.

She pointed to the leadership role Indigenous governments have played in the creation of protected areas across the country, from Gwaii Haanas National Park Reserve off British Columbia's northern coast to the Torngat Mountains National Park in Labrador.

Graham Saul, head of Nature Canada, described the conservation measures as a billion-dollar breakthrough.

"This budget is a game-changer," Saul said. "We think that Canada's wildlife would also applaud."

The Nature Conservancy of Canada welcomed the new measures, as did the Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society.

Steve Cornish, CEO of the David Suzuki Foundation, described the funding as urgently needed to address Canada's biodiversity crisis.

Gone_Fishin, I'm looking forward to what you have to say about this initiative. ^^ :D

Yep. Cancel environmental funding and wait for conservatives to use it as an attack against the liberals, and then instead increase funding so that the conservatives can’t turn around and claim money is being wasted without eating their own words.

Of course newspapers here in AB still headline this story as “Deeper in debt”

Sorry cons, can’t have it both ways.
