As a person who has lived in Northwestern Ontario for over forty years on a smaller inland lake with very few Cormorants sighted, I am totally opposed to this plan. I am very interested in bird habitat and bird watching. I have noticed a dramatic increase in the number of Bald Eagles in our area because of year round fishing opportunities. Will they be targeted next? Leave the cormorants alone. Do not mess with the natural food chain. The animals need our help in this crazy world of changing climate.
The concept of a bag limit of fifty birds a day and then allowing the flesh to rot is reprehensible. How is this sustainable? How is this a positive use of Ministry monies? Let us be looking at the decline in the Moose population and how we are dealing with that. Once the bodies are lifeless we cannot bring them back.
A person who is concerned about our environment.
