The Peaceful Parks Coalition Aims and Objectives on Sport Hunting:

On the PPC website their view on Sport Hunting  states:

While the sport hunting lobby is well-organized and aggressive, they represent a very small and declining portion of the overall population. Both angling and sport hunting are no longer popular outdoor activities. According to a federal report released in 2000, “The Importance of Nature to Canadians”, only 3.5% of Ontarians engage in the sport of hunting but yet they are given 100% of Ontario’s natural resources including our parks and conservation areas, affording wildlife no protection

I disagree as hunters and anglers spend considerably more on conservation by purchasing licences and promoting a healthy outdoor lifestyle year round. There are numerous areas restricting hunting and trapping. Hunting  is just one proven method to balance over population of deer and geese. It’s already known the damage overpopulation of wildlife causes. Cormorant nesting colonies  is another problem quickly arising in Ontario and must be addressed soon.
