PAC not associated with BCWF in any way

Dear editor,

In the Oct. 6 issue of the Record, there was a large ad asking “Can you trust the NDP?”

It was written by a small organization called the BCWF Political Action Committee.  It is in no way part of, or associated with the BC Wildlife Federation.

The BCWF Political Action Alliance (PAA) is a society registered under the Societies Act of BC and is not in any way directly associated with or part of the BC Wildlife Federation.  It has its own constitution, its own directors and its own mandate as registered with the Registrar.

The BCWF Political Action Alliance currently has three funds in place.

One fund was created by Gary Mauser specifically to support the passing of Bill C-391 with a goal to promote the elimination of the long-gun registry.

The more recent fund is the Resident Angler and Hunter Preservation Fund (RAHPF).

And apparently to now push a single focus agenda during the ongoing federal election.

So why is it important to make sure your readers understand the difference? To begin with the BC Wildlife Federation is a registered charity  with the foremost objective being conservation of our natural resources. And secondarily to promote wise use of our resources by all Canadians.

The BC Wildlife Federation does not get involved in promoting any particular political party.

It seems the BCWF Political Action Alliance has decided to use the US National Rifle Association scare tactic of “they are going to take your guns away.”

I urge the readers to not fall into the trap.

I will respectfully request that before you vote, please look at the big picture.

To vote on a single issue basis without taking other issues into account is not in the best interests of our great country.

Bryan Allen
