A recent poll has shown what we’ve been saying for years: the vast majority of British Columbians are opposed to the fur trade.
Insights West, a BC-based research company, recently announced the findings of a poll, which examined the attitudes of BC residents on various aspects of hunting, trapping and the fur trade. The results were clear: the fur trade must go.
“It is abundantly clear that few British Columbians are in favour of trophy hunting and furring,” said Mario Canseco, Vice President, Public Affairs at Insights West. “At least four-in-five residents voice opposition to both of these practices.”
The poll revealed that only 15 per cent of British Columbians support the killing of animals for their fur, and only 10 per cent believe animals should be hunted for sport.
With public opinion so clearly against this archaic and cruel practice, we must ask: when will the government of British Columbia recognize the beliefs of their residents and act?
