Regardless, there were over 150 people in attendance to listen to other panelists and to mingle with NGO groups present at the event, including Wolf Matters. We are extremely grateful to CEI for inviting WM to this important event.
We are also incredibly grateful to Wolf Matters team members Teena and Kim for sharing information on wolves and coyotes at the Cochrane Ecological Institute last night. What a wonderful event with wonderful people.
"Amazing evening with Danielle Smith (Global News Radio), Dr. David Swann (MLA) and Lisa Dahlseide B.Sc (Conservation Biology), we were there representing Wolf Matters, the primary focus of this event was to talk about "Schedule A" under AEP's wildlife management policy. This evening was so important if you were interested in seeing any change in how this policy discriminates against select groups of species - not based on science or research but on human decision! AEP in less than 24 hours before this event elected to change their position and not attend this event. I can only think it is because they have no clue on co-existance and compassion but are very good at "management by way of killing" - I know this because of a recent event that I was involved in and very dissappointed with the outcome of and I'm still embarrassed that I promoted!!! This little bear just north of Bragg Creek has opened the conversation and people are more committed now then they have been to see change and I am so hopeful. Last night left me with such a heartfelt feeling of spending time with people that are so in line with exactly what we in our own home stand for when it comes to our animals, domesticated and wild.....Danielle Smith and the panel was just wonderful "
Please continue to speak up for our wildlife, contact your MLA today and everyday until you get an answer.
