Global Television Cancels Hunting Shows from it’s 2013 line-up

Has Canadian Global Television become an Anti Hunter?

Media Release – Global Television Cancels Hunting Shows from it’s 2013 line-up

It is with great sadness that Beasley Brothers announce the very unfortunate decision by Global Television/Shaw Media to cancel all hunting shows on Global and the Shaw affiliate networks.
Canada in the Rough™ has been airing for 8 years on Global Television and we’ve had a tremendous experience doing it. We want to thank all of you for your support throughout the years and as much as we hate to say goodbye, we have no choice. Canada in the Rough™, Canada’s most-watched hunting show, will be pulled off Global Television after December 30, 2012.

Our hunting heritage is under constant attack by those who have forgotten that hunting is at the root of human existence and still the most valuable and effective tool in wildlife management.

If you wish to share your thoughts with Global regarding this decision, please email [email protected] as well as [email protected] and [email protected] or call 1-877-307-1999.

Please remember to enjoy the greatness of Canada and be proud of your hunting heritage and thanks for your support

Sincerely,

Keith Beasley, Paul Beasley & Kevin Beasley
Executive Producers

 

An update :

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 [email protected] as well as [email protected] and [email protected] or call 1-877-307-1999.
