Raincoast executive director joins CBC’s BC Almanac to talk about the new grizzly bear hunting ban policy announcement

Chris Genovali speaks out against the hunting of large carnivores.

Last week Chris Genovali joined CBC’s BC Almanac to talk about the NDP announcement to ban grizzly bear hunting in the Great Bear Rainforest. BC Almanac also interviewed Andrew Weaver and Jesse Zeeman of the BC Wildlife Federation about the proposed NDP plan to stop the hunting of grizzlies in the Great Bear Rainforest and to limit it elsewhere in the province.

This is an interview about an important and sensitive issue that is on the hearts and minds of British Columbians. Take a listen.

“Just because we can do something, doesn’t mean we should.” – Chris Genovali, executive director Raincoast Conservation Foundation
