SCI-Canada sponsored a Wild Game dinner for the Newly formed Conservative Hunting and Angling Caucus in the center block located on Parliament hill. The SCI Ottawa Valley chapter provided wild game mounts from around the world as well as the wild game. Members of Parliament‚Äôs¬† from the Conservative party attended the event which was extremely well received and appreciated. SCI Canada‚Äôs Manager of Operations Jason St. Michael addressed the crowd on the importance of hunting as it relates to conservation, economics and tourism for Canada. Members from both the Ottawa Valley chapter and from the Outaouais chapter supported¬† SCI-Canada at this event ensuring a great success. Other
organizations that attended included Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters and Ducks Unlimited Canada. This event was just one day prior to the Prime Minister of Canada,¬† Stephen Harper¬† launched the National Conservation Plan (NCP), which will provide a more coordinated approach to conservation efforts across the country with an emphasis on enabling Canadians to conserve and restore lands and waters in and around their
communities, and making it easier for citizens living in cities to connect with nature.
