It is with great pride that Canadian Firearms community announces that Pyper Unitt is the Canadian Spokesperson for the International Coalition for Women in Shooting and Hunting (WiSH).

“WiSH is an international coalition of women who hunt & shoot. We have almost 200,000 Canadian women and families who support us and it is a great honour to have the opportunity to represent them here in Canada,” states Pyper Unitt, Vice Chair & Assistant CEO of the Canadian Firearms Institute.

As a coalition, WiSH emphasizes support rather than membership.

WiSH urges all its supporters  to take practical, grassroots action – by contacting local politicians, writing to local newspapers, lobbying for increased funding for women’s health care and essential services, and if able, make donations to bodies who are really trying to help women.

WiSH works on a volunteer basis, is totally self funded and prefers people make donations towards the objectives it supports – it’s not about the individual members of our community, but about improving services and support for those who most need it – WiSH just asks that our supporters try to do their bit to raise awareness, and work toward positive social change.

“The anti-gun lobbyists around the world have cynically used women to further their cause – and muddy the waters with emotive rhetoric”, states Pyper Unitt – “It’s going to take a group of like minded women working together to effect real positive social change, to counter this rhetoric – and – with the help of all of the rest of the organizations that represent our proud community – re-gain the respect for our sport and our heritage that we deserve.”
