Passing this along...

The "Premier's Symposium" 
(http://www.mnr.gov.on.ca/MNR/ps2000), a sports hunting 
convention & the first ever in Canada will be held in the Ottawa 
Congress Centre this August. Mike Harris, Premier of Ontario, an 
adamant sports hunter, has recently proposed some disturbing 
legislation strictly for creating recreational opportunities for sports 
hunters & anglers, and a new  "Heritage Hunting & Fishing Act," 
seeking to enshrine sports hunting as a right, and privatize 
licensing & regulation of sports hunters, resulting in a private 
organization, The Ontario Federation of Anglers & Hunters, being 
placed in charge of a large component of wilderness management 
in the province. The Peaceful Parks Coalition is organizing a rally 
outside the convention centre; we are inviting anyone & everyone 
concerned about wildlife protection. Help protect our last 
remaining wilderness areas from special interests such as sports 
hunting! The Harris government's environmental record has been 
appalling & is now catching up with them. (Peaceful Parks 
supports First Nations traditional & subsistence hunting). More
