Deer in BC | On The Island

Yesterday's clip starts at 18:40 mark: When it comes to the future of deer in the CRD opinions run strong and contrary, especially when it comes to discussing a possible cull. Some think the thousands of does and bucks are a nuisance wandering into city centres and destroying crops on Saanich farms. And others think they are living animals that deserve our care and protection. On Wednesday there will be a public meeting on this contentious issue. John Ranns is the chair of the Planning, Transportation & Protective Services Committe for CRD.

On today's show at 11 am EST: "The politics of ungulates. Greater Victoria's deer dilemma is attracting national attention. We'll hear from the leader of a federal political party who's in town trying to prevent a cull."
