A good summary of the parties’ positions is in this Vancouver Sun article.  As well, Justice for BC Grizzlies has asked all BC candidates for their perspective on the grizzly hunt. A quick overview:

  • BC Liberals: ban grizzly hunt in Great Bear Rainforest; maintain science-based approach elsewhere in the province; platform commitment page 122
  • BC NDP: ban the grizzly bear trophy hunt province-wide, while leaving open the possibility of a hunt where the meat is consumed; platform commitment page 58
  • BC Greens: end the trophy hunting of grizzly bears; anyone that hunts a grizzly must carry it out to their home (intended to be a “crippling logistical barrier” to foreign hunters); not in platform, addressed in response to question.
