Breder Law applauds the BC NDP for taking a strong stance in favour of banning trophy hunting. On November 24, 2016, John Horgan, leader of the NDP stated: "more than 90 per cent of B.C. residents — including Coastal First Nations — oppose this kind of cruelty. These majestic animals deserve our full protection, especially since they are already struggling to survive habitat disruption and loss." We expect that the debate around the banning of trophy hunting will be an election issue, as it should be. The residents of BC, and people from around the world, deeply care about this issue. Breder Law hopes the government will make the right decision and ensure this cruel "sport" is finally banned.
