My cousin Ryan works in the forestry industry in northern Alberta. He sent me some pictures today (with the message "And all I thought bears could do was eat my quad seat") that cast some doubt upon the conventional camping wisdom about hanging your food in a tree so that the bears don't get at it. These pictures were taken in the Long Lake area (near Athabasca).
Now, to those folks in the few square kilometers that comprise Toronto: remind me again why you want to take our rifles away? Canada is still a very big place, and most of it is still wilderness. Remember these pictures the next time you go camping.
