Environment Canada (EC) commissioned a company in Vancouver called “ToxEcology – Environmental Consulting Ltd” to gather data regarding lead ammunition.
This is the second time they have launched this initiative. The intent is to gather data to be used by EC to ban the sale of all lead ammunition in Canada, despite the mountains of scientific evidence that shows lead on shooting ranges is not a problem.
THIS IS SERIOUS. Fabricated evidence against the use of lead ammunition has already resulted in the closure of shooting ranges and lead ammunition use in some regions of the world. Most harshly, it affects shotgunners and indoor ranges, despite existing safeguards that work.
Make no mistake on where this is coming from: this is being spearheaded by anti-hunting and anti-firearm groups around the globe.
