Haida Gwaii residents to protest the bear hunt

On the day that the provincial bear hunting season starts up, the Council of the Haida Nation is calling upon residents of Haida Gwaii and those who support banning the hunting of bears to gather for a protest at the Tlell River Lodge on April 1 beginning at noon.

This is the second year that a protest has been held against the hunting of bears on Haida Gwaii, with last year’s protest partially spurred on by a graphic video that was posted on YouTube showing the shooting of a black bear on the island.
