#2 - U.S. Trophy Hunters And The BC Liberals – A Killer Relationship

Part of the BC Liberals' Dirty Dozen Donations series

Just before the election, a group of rich American trophy hunters sent $60,000 to BC to ensure that the BC Liberals get re-elected so that they can continue to come up here and kill grizzly bears for sport.

Donald Trump’s sons are among those who travel the world killing leopards, elephants, and grizzlies.

We don’t know where the money ended up. We do know that guide outfitters who take Americans out to kill grizzles donate significantly to the BC Liberals.

91% of British Columbians oppose the trophy hunting of grizzly bears, and this includes 74% in rural areas, putting the lie to the argument that it’s just city folk who are opposed.

The BC Liberals are the only major party that wants Americans to keep killing BC grizzlies. One of their candidates – Darren Deluca – is a guide outfitter pictured on the left below.



All major BC political parties other than the BC Liberals have pledged to ban corporate, union, and foreign donations and to limit individual donations. Vote for change on May 9.
