    Panel: Linda Michaluk

    Appeal against decision to suspend hunting privileges for thirty years. The Appellant had a history of charges and convictions under the Wildlife Act which dated back several years. Following his most recent court conviction of 30 counts under the Act and Regulation the Deputy Director suspended the Appellant’s hunting privileges for 30 years. The appeal was dismissed as there was no evidence presented to show the Director erred in exercising his discretion. As it is not inconceivable that the Appellant may be physically capable of hunting upon the expiry of the suspension of hunting privileges, the Board recommended that he be required to successfully complete the CORE program prior to being eligible to receive a hunting licence.
