Global Television Cancels Hunting Shows in 2013 Programming

 
Follow up to “Global Television Cancels Hunting Shows from it’s 2013 line-up”
 
Hello Canada in the Rough enthusiasts, due to the tremendous amount of feedback that we received from our last communication regarding the cancellation of all hunting shows on Global Television, we wanted to provide an update to help answer some of the commonly asked questions.
 
Canada in the Rough will continue to air on Global until December 30, 2012. If Global does not reverse their decision, Beasley Brothers Outdoors Inc. will continue to look for other network options to air Canada in the Rough but it is unknown at this point whether we will be successful in that pursuit or not.
 
It is widely believed that this decision started as a result of pressure from an anti-hunting group that urged its members to contact Global and complain about the hunting shows. For more information, go to http://www.vancouverhumanesociety.bc.ca/global-television-hunting/
 
The following is a list of articles written about this travesty of our hunting heritage:

There is an online petition that you can sign to show your support of Global reversing this decision at CLICK HERE to view online petition
 
The anti-hunting group that started this fight has created a counter-petition and in that petition they state: “It is our fervent hope that this will start a proactive trend in broadcasting communities globally!”
 
There is your proof and make no mistake about it. This is not just a battle affecting Canadians and this is not just a decision made by the executives at SHAW. Our hunting heritage is under attack by those who don’t understand it and lack the desire to educate themselves. If we lose our right to broadcast hunting on national television, the anti-groups will get stronger and will not stop there. They will go after hunting across the world and will not stop until they’ve taken all of our privileges away. It’s time to stand up and be counted. Complacency will not save our hunting heritage.
 
If you wish to share your thoughts with Global regarding this decision, please email viewercontact@globaltv.com as well as glynnis.prystae@sjrb.ca and greg.mclelland@shawmedia.ca or call 1-877-307-1999.
 
From all of us here at Canada in the Rough, and on behalf of all hunters across this great nation, thank you for your support and remember to enjoy the greatness of Canada and be proud of your hunting heritage.
 
Sincerely,
Keith Beasley, Paul Beasley & Kevin Beasley
