Some recommendations you might want to point out:

Not enough time has been allocated to respond to this plan in a meaningful way. Ask the government to extend the Dec 5th deadline to January 30, 2013.
Set aside large areas of the province where wolves are protected from any killing, so that wolves can develop natural packs and behaviour, which will provide benchmarks for scientific research and as areas where people can watch wolves.
NO helicopter killing of wolves.
NO leg hold traps or snares.
By the draft Plan's own admissions, 11 years of killing wolves to save caribou have not increased caribou. These programs have failed and should be stopped.
The government has acknowledged that the chief reason for mountain caribou decline is loss of habitat. A secondary reason is snowmobiling and heli-skiing in winter habitat. To save caribou the government should 1) stop logging old-growth forest in mountain caribou range, 2) ban snowmobiles from winter range (current bans are inadequate and not enforced), and 3) roads built in caribou range need to be obliterated to prevent easy access by predators.
Return to former species license, quotas, bag limits, restricted seasons, and mandatory reporting of kills for hunting wolves.
Continue government programs for compensating ranchers for losses to wild predators.
Fund an adequate Conservation Officer Service. The Conservation Officer Service should not partner with vested interests such as ranchers.
Practice prevention by providing education and incentives to improve protection with fences, guard dogs, shepherds, etc.

This is just a little information to help you with your e-mail , fax or phone calls. It is important to let the ministers listed below and Premier Christy Clark know that you are not in favor of this Wolf Slaughter (management plan) in Super Natural B.C.
