    Keywords: Consent order

    William Severs appealed a decision of the Deputy Director of Wildlife to cancel his hunting licence for approximately 3 years, and to order him to successfully complete the Conservation and Outdoor Recreation Education program before his hunting privileges could be reinstated. The Deputy Director’s decision was based on Mr. Severs having been charged under the Wildlife Act for his involvement in harvesting a moose claimed to be harvested by another.

    By consent of the parties, the Board ordered that the penalty imposed by the Deputy Director be reduced. Accordingly, Mr. Severs is eligible to apply for a new hunting licence after July 1, 2001, instead of December 31, 2002.
