One Is Too Many: War on the North: When Mike Harris Killed Ontario's Spring Bear Hunt

T. E. Quinney

In 1999, fuelled by a multi-million dollar propaganda campaign, Premier Mike Harris, without warning, ignited a firestorm across northern Ontario by terminating the spring bear hunt. One Is Too Many chronicles the twenty-year struggle to restore the hunt, documenting the impacts on thousands of people, their culture, and their way of life. Misinformation trumped science and rational wildlife conservation management, harming people, northern communities, and the black bear population. Dramatic courtroom testimony revealed important, currently-relevant issues, including fundamental justice and rights, the chasm between northern communities and the city-state of the south, political expediency, animal rights, the future of hunting, judicial independence, and ethics and morality.
