PROTEST AGAINST PLACE BONAVENTURE'S HUNTING, FISHING, & CAMPING SHOW

Date: Sunday, February 26th 2006

Time: 1pm to 2pm

Location: 800 De La Gauchetiere West (between University and Mansfield)

Today, hunting, which was a crucial part of survival 100,000 years ago, is nothing more than a violent form of recreation that is unnecessary for the subsistence of the vast majority of hunters. Hunting has contributed to the extinction of animal species all over the world, including the Tasmanian tiger and the great auk.

We believe that hunting and fishing is outdated and a sport for cowards. What is it so sporty or heroic when pointing a gun or a hook on a defenseless animal??? It shoudn't be called a sport, rather it is MURDER! Please come to the protest to help us send the exhibitors and visitors a loud and clear message that they should stop supporting these kinds of cruel sport.
