FORT ST. JOHN – Bob Zimmer, Member of Parliament for Prince George-Peace River-Northern Rockies and Co-Chair of the Parliamentary Outdoor Caucus issued the following statement regarding National Hunting, Trapping and Fishing Heritage Day:
“As Co-Chair of the Parliamentary Outdoor Caucus and an avid member of the outdoor community, I understand the importance of conservation so that hunting, trapping and fishing activities can be enjoyed by all Canadians for generations to come.
“In 2013, I was proud to support my friend and former colleague Rick Norlock’s Private Member’s Bill which established an annual National Hunting, Trapping and Fishing Heritage Day on the third Saturday of September to honour Canada’s proud outdoor heritage.
“So whether it’s hunting, trapping, or fishing, I hope you will get a chance this Saturday to gather up your family and enjoy our great outdoors!”
This year, National Hunting, Trapping and Fishing Heritage Day takes place on Saturday, September 19.
