Stewart says no bear hunting

JUNE 17 2009

Terrace BC


A “No Bear Hunting” area is being proposed along the 60 km stretch of Highway 37A between Meziadin Junction to Stewart and Hyder, which would ban hunting of the animal from mountain top to mountain top along the Bear Pass.

The Stewart Municipal Council passed the motion at its meeting June 8 in recognition of the animal being a large part of its tourism draw.

“It was just kind of something that council has been talking about for a while,” said District of Stewart Mayor Angela Brand Danuser. “We rely so much on tourism, and tourism is our bears.”
