Today, I wrote a letter to Pierre Dufour, Minister of Forests, Wildlife and Parks, asking him to accept the requests of the Anishinabe communities of Mitchikanibikok (Lac Barrière) and Kitigan Zibi for a five-year moratorium on non-native moose hunting in the so-called La Vérendrye Wildlife Reserve.

In this letter, I invite the Minister to, among other things, respect Aboriginal rights, seek a peaceful resolution to the conflict and ensure the protection of lands, ecosystems and the moose population in Quebec.

Alex Tyrrell,
Leader of the Green Party of Quebec
