Thank you very much. All of your testimonies were very compelling.
I agree with Mr. Zealand when he made the point that there's not enough recognition of the outdoor activities that are so important in Canada. I was impressed by the conservation record of your three organizations in terms of what you do. In fact I came across a definition of a hunter. It's that a hunter is somebody who pays for all conservation, but gets no credit for it. I think that this study is an attempt to remedy that.
I'll ask Mr. Crabbe directly, why is this study important? It's the first of its kind by the environment committee. Why is it important for our committee to look at this topic?
