Conservatives Create Hunting And Angling Caucus

Robert Sopuck, Member of Parliament for Dauphin/Swan River/Marquette, chaired the inaugural Conservative Hunting and Angling caucus, with his vice chairs Blaine Calkins, Member of Parliament for Wetaskiwin, and Ryan Leef, Member of Parliament for Yukon. The caucus was established for Conservative Members of Parliament to move forward on conservation issues and the concerns of Canada’s hunting and angling communities.

“The Conservative Hunting and Angling caucus is a venue for Members of Parliament to discuss the common concerns of their constituents and move forward with solutions for our government,” said Sopuck. “The caucus will also have the opportunity to meet with hunters, anglers and trappers across the country and bring the wealth of knowledge they possess on conservation to bear on environment issues.”

Thirty Conservative members and senators have now joined the Conservative Hunting and Angling caucus with more expected to join in the coming days.

“The establishment of a Conservative hunting and angling caucus is an exciting opportunity to advance the issues surrounding conservation, habitat and enhancement of fish and game while engaging the millions of Canadians who enjoy the great outdoors,” said Blaine Calkins, MP for Wetaskiwin.

During the meeting the caucus set out the goals of the caucus and discussed outreach to Canada’s hunting, angling and trapping community.
