Albert man fined for not having Ontario hunting licence
PARRY SOUND — An Alberta hunter has been fined $5,000 for not having a valid hunting licence here last fall.
The Ministry of Natural Resources says he was fined for “possessing a void deer hunting licence.”
Robert Baier, of Stony Plain, pleaded guilty to the charge and was fined $5,000, the MNR said in a Thursday news release.
Court heard that on November 4, 2013, Baier produced an Ontario resident deer hunting licence at a camp along the FrenchRiver in BlairTownship in the District of Parry Sound.
As a resident of Alberta, Baier requires a non-resident hunting licence.
Possession of the Ontario hunting licence was, therefore, void.
Justice of the Peace Susan Hilton heard the case in the Ontario Court of Justice, Parry Sound, on June 10, 2014.
The Ministry of Natural Resources reminds the public that in order to qualify as a resident of Ontario you must reside in Ontario for six consecutive months during the immediately preceding 12 months.
They say to report a natural resource violation, call 1-877-TIPS-MNR (847-7667) toll-free any time or contact your ministry office during regular business hours. You can also call Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
