The Commission on Environmental Co-operation, which is part of the North American Free Trade Agreement, has accepted a petition from a U.S.-based group that says Canada isn't following its own laws on protecting the bears.

Thanks. Is this the reason some people don't want to join international organisations?

I hope this has an impact, Polar Bears should be on the endangered list. Hunters shouldn't be allowed to come to Canada and pay to shoot a trophy Polar Bear. Two Polar bear hybrids were killed that way, it's their chance for survival, but not if we kill them.

The only acceptable explanation is letting polar bears live in peace.

I liked Canada's environmental policies much better before Stephen Harper took office. He's seems to be walking in lockstep with the GOP, which is not a good thing for the environment.

Canada has a terrible reputation for killing. We have the annual seal slaughter, trophy hunting of the grizzly bear, and of course the Polar bear. The Harper government is obsessed with becoming an energy producing nation with the filthy tar sands and pipeline proposals. The latest omnibus bill, Bill C38 ,further slashes environmental protection for lakes and rivers, inter alia, and excludes pipelines from environmental assessments.

Canada has simply decided to do whatever the f**k they want and ignore logic, science and morality. Remember, this is from a country that defends it's practice of clubbing baby seals to death. What can they possibly say about this that would make sense to anyone with a functioning brain?

I refuse to visit Canada annually for holidays from Australia as I have previously done for the last 20 years due to their abuse of animals including seals and polar bears etc.Shame on Canada

Some how our government is being run but the corporations and are too busy to protect anything that will affect furture generations. It's unfortunate that we voted them back in power.

We all need to be held accountable for our actions. This organization needs to step up to the plate and make the countries that have rhino's, tiger's, elephants and other endangered animals explain what they are doing to save the species.
