Nakusp Rod and Gun Club host Federal Conservatives

The chair of the conservative hunting and angling caucus met with members of the Nakusp rod and gun club

MP Robert Sopuck (Dauphin-Swan River-Marquette), Chair of the Conservative Hunting and Angling Caucus and Marshall Nefueld, Conservative Candidate for South Okanagan West Kootenay, met with members of the Nakusp Rod and Gun Club on December 13 for a discussion on hunting, angling and trapping issues.

“We had a robust discussion with members of the Rod and Gun Club along with interested members of the public,” said Neufeld.  “It was a very informative presentation by Mr. Sopuck to the approximately twenty people in attendance, regarding the Conservative Government’s approach to conservation, hunting and angling policies and the new Common Sense Firearms Act legislation.”

Following the meeting, Sopuck, Neufeld and Hank Scown, President of the Nakusp Rod and Gun Club, an affiliate of the BC Wildlife Federation, visited a fish migration barrier at the mouth of Heart Creek, a tributary of Arrow Lakes, to learn more about a proposed fisheries enhancement project.

“MP David Wilks has been working hard on this issue and MP Sopuck and I will be adding our voices to secure funding from the Recreational Fisheries and Conservation Partnerships Program, in order that the Rod and Gun Club can move forward with this worthwhile project to restore fish habitat for spawning,” stated Neufeld.

Neufeld noted that the meeting, along with a similar Roundtable with the Penticton Shooting Sports Association, were so informative, future discussions are being planned with the Trail Wildlife Association and other organizations in the new year.
