Uh, no. We are talking about aeration, and the lack of it for fear of legal actions by the stupid people of the world. YOU are the one obsessed with put and take fisheries. You are the one who started insulting valued members of our community. If you work for the ACA, come out and say so. Your attitude reminds me of that arrogance (of ignorance) that we have put up with for decades from the fisheries bios in this province. Only recently has this started to change, and it is long overdue.

If you donít want money spent on aeration and put and take fisheries, that is fine and you are entitled to your opinion, as of today, Canada is still a free country. Say your peace and donít let the door hit you in the a** on the way out.

How many hours a year do you volunteer for fish and wildlife projects, and or conservation organizations? Some of us have given a significant portion of our lives to try and create better opportunities for the citizens of Alberta, both current and future. Your approach to discussing conservation issues is caustic, at best.

Enjoy what so many others have worked hard for to provide you the opportunity... including those you have insulted most.

No respect. At all.

I would love to do an in-depth review of the organization to ensure this not for profit is delivering value or is some eco country club.

For example...telephone and communications. $160,000? What is this? Sometimes lump sums and a common term just has people gloss over it.

To find more money for projects like Police Outpost aeration...it has to come from somewhere.

Also...very hard from their website to see what grants are given out end two whom or which projects.

Grants are identified in the annual report I linked earlier.
As I said one grant is for the "Environmental, genetic, and social influences on sex ratio in the boreal ant (Formica podzolica)"...
