MLA for Kootenay East, Tom Shypitka

tom shypitkaVICTORIA (June 1, 2022) – Today, Kootenay East MLA Tom Shypitka introduced the Wildlife Amendment Act, a private member’s bill that would lay the groundwork for a new independent funding model for wildlife and habitat management.

“This model would be eligible to receive funding and revenue from the different levels of government, including municipal, provincial, federal, and Indigenous governments. This legislation would ensure that 100 per cent of the revenue from licences, as well as fees from hunting and other forms of land use, such as stakeholder, philanthropy, and industry usage, would all go towards funding wildlife and habitat management,” said Shypitka.
