Calgary, Alberta – Michelle Rempel, Conservative candidate for Calgary Nose Hill, spoke today in Calgary about the Conservatives’ plan to give hunters and anglers a voice in protecting Canada’s natural habitats by re-establishing the Hunting and Angling Advisory Panel.

“The Trudeau Liberals cut the Hunting and Angling Advisory Panel and chose to lose touch with what is happening in our local communities,” said Rempel. “Canada’s hunters and anglers make significant contributions to the preservation of species and habitats and can offer valuable advice on the stewardship of Canada’s wildlife.”

“Justin Trudeau and his Liberal team have ignored much of the important work that is being done in local communities to protect, conserve, and manage our environment due to their “Ottawa knows best” approach,” said Rempel.

Thunder Bay-Superior North Conservative candidate Frank Pullia adds, “For the people of Northern Ontario who live in one of the most beautiful natural areas of the world, the top down “we know best” approach of the Trudeau’s Liberals does not work as it does not take into account the local needs and realities that can only be understood by having a seat at the table. After all, isn’t this the fundamental premise of consultation?”

“The Conservative Party has a proud history of protecting the natural environment and will bring all stakeholders at the table to ensure that Canadians and especially the people of Thunder Bay-Superior North will continue to enjoy a great quality of life that respects people and protects the earth”.

In A Real Plan to Protect our Environment, restoring the Hunting and Angling Advisory is just one of many initiatives focused on increasing community involvement and positioning the government alongside Canadians to work together to promote a cleaner and greener natural environment. There are so many Canadians who work diligently to fight climate change and protect our environment. Canada’s Conservatives want to make sure that your voice is heard, that you have a seat at the table and that the government is working with you.

Andrew Scheer, Leader of Canada’s Conservatives: “Justin Trudeau is not as advertised. This election, Canadians have a choice. Between the poor judgment of Justin Trudeau, and a new, positive Conservative government that will take immediate action for you to get ahead.”
