Dutton & District Lions buy Defibrillator

Press Release:  On Thursday April 18, 2019, the Dutton & District Lions were taught how to properly use and maintain their new defibrillator.

Ray Ormerod from the St Thomas Fire Dept. and head of the Elgin-St. Thomas St. John's Ambulance Service, conducted a professional and entertaining training session so all members would be able to utilize this life saving devise.

The purchase was made possible by the net proceeds of the LIONS Annual Valentines Fish Fry.

The unit will be installed in the LIONS Den which serves as both the Lions meeting venue and the food booth for the Sons of Scotland Park, in Dutton.

"With all the LIONS activities and the close proximity to the base-ball diamonds, soccer fields and pool area, this is a perfect location for this unit." stated Lion President Duncan McCallum.

News Release - New Big Game Management Advisory Committee

News Release

Ontario Announces New Big Game Management Advisory Committee

April 17, 2019

The “BG MAC” of committees leading the Moose Management Review

The Ontario government is working for the people by listening to concerns from hunters on how the province manages its moose population to ensure sustainability and hunting opportunities for future generations.

Last fall, the government announced a review of moose management in Ontario. Today John Yakabuski, Minister of Natural Resources and Forestry, announced the Big Game Management Advisory Committee (BGMAC), tasked with advising on improvements to how the province manages moose and other big game including deer, elk and black bear.

"We have heard concerns from hunters that the current approach, specifically the moose tag draw system, is not working for hunters or ensuring sustainability," said Yakabuski. "We're acting on those concerns and delivering on our promise to make life easier for Ontario's hunters, while ensuring sustainable populations and continued hunting opportunities."

The committee consists of members with diverse knowledge and experience in moose management and quota review, moose hunting, tourist outfitter operations, and previous experience on wildlife advisory committees. The initial task of the committee will be to develop recommendations on moose management, with a focus on how quotas are developed, and how tags are allocated to hunters through the draw.

The Committee will be hosting six listening sessions open to the public throughout May:

  • St. Thomas - May 21, 2019
  • Peterborough - May 22, 2019
  • North Bay - May 23, 2019
  • Sault Ste. Marie - May 28, 2019
  • Thunder Bay - May 29, 2019
  • Dryden - May 30, 2019

Interested hunters, members of the public and organizations are invited to attend one of these sessions to share their perspectives to develop a path forward. More details on the location of these listening sessions will be posted at Ontario.ca/moose.

"Over the next two years, our goal is to make moose hunting fairer, more accessible and simpler for hunters. Work is already underway to make immediate improvements to online resources so that we can better communicate with hunters," said Minister Yakabuski. "As the review unfolds, we will continue to listen and engage hunters and stakeholders to help us improve how tag quotas are developed and distributed."
