Hunting is an ancient tradition and an integral part of our cultural heritage.
The ancestors of today's human populations ensured our survival by hunting for food and clothing.
Today hunting is still an important activity for millions of people around the world.
For many, it is still an important method of food gathering.
For others, hunting is a recreational activity that provides an opportunity to further friendships and camaraderie, an opportunity to experience nature and be in the outdoors to make an important contribution to conservation.
Responsible hunters support the rules that have been established to ensure that our wildlife populations are sustained and that hunting remains a safe activity.

The Ontario Hunter Education Program is administered by the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources in partnership with the Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters.
In 1960, Ontario became the first Canadian province to establish a mandatory Ontario Hunter Education course that included training on safe and responsible hunting.

Hunting and Wildlife Populations Legal hunting does not endanger wildlife populations.
In fact, it can play an important role in maintaining an abundant population within the carrying capacity of its habitat.
Those species that are hunted are managed sustainably.
This management is based on sound science and long-term monitoring.
The pressures on our wildlife populations today include habitat fragmentation and destruction, pollution, invasive species and unsustainable use.
The Importance of Hunting, Hunters contribute a great deal of time, money, and effort to wildlife management.
Hunters are involved in a variety of volunteer programs that help maintain and enhance wildlife and their habitat.
In Ontario, the money from hunter license fees contributes to monitoring and protecting wildlife.
The funds raised with the waterfowl stamp on the federal migratory bird hunting permit support habitat protection programs that benefit all wildlife that depend on wetlands.

The long gun registry
In 2014 when the long gun registry was abolished,
The crime rate dropped in the GTA by 85% since the rest of Canada dropped by 35%.
Criminals don't like it when their subjects are armed.

Law-abiding gun owners are responsible, more so than any other segment of Canadian society.
We always remember that when our 20,000 people left the front lawns of Parliament Hill during the Fed-Up rallies, they picked up their garbage and left the lawn cleaner than they found it.

Crime Control not Gun Control
Best 7 minutes on gun control I have ever seen !
Seal of the Virtual President of the United States.
The Virtual Presidency is a rhetorical device used to introduce common sense into modern American politics, In this segment of his Virtual State of the Union, the Virtual President talks about why politicians want to talk about gun control rather than crime control, and delivers the factual evidence and historical truths that make the cause for the Second Amendment self-evident.
