On November 24th, CBC Radio’s program “Out in the Open” carried an interview with John Evers of the Canadian Shooting Sports Association, on “How it feels to be a gun lover in Canada”. It’s a 9 1/2 minute audio program that you can listen to on-line.
Loads of Canadians own them — legally — but hunter, sport shooter and all-round firearms enthusiast John Evers feels hated for his enjoyment of guns. He says Canadians, by and large, conflate guns with violence.
I found the interview to be reasonably fair and open-minded, and Evers to be quite a good spokesman.
Our next meeting will be held on Thursday, December 7th, at 7:30 pm, at our clubhouse (click for map). Visitors are always welcome!
If you have ordered a club shirt, hoodie, jacket, this will be your first opportunity to pick them up. (No worries if you have to miss the meeting – we’ll get them to you somehow!)

We have received this from the OFAH:
Epizootic Hemorrhagic Disease (similar to bluetongue) has been discovered in two dead deer near London, Ontario. More details will likely emerge in the coming days, but for now, we have set up a page with all of the relevant available information. Please share widely.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me or Matt DeMille.
Yours in Conservation,
