Semi-automatic assault-style rifles to be used for Sidney Island deer kill

The killing of deer on Sidney Island will begin on Dec. 1, when sharpshooters will start picking the animals off from a helicopter, by land and from boats.

The cull, planned by Parks Canada and expected to last 10 days, is intended to eliminate European fallow deer — an invasive species — from the island, but will also see native black-tailed deer killed.

Property owners on the island — located east of Sidney and just four kilometres from Island View Beach in Saanich — confirmed the kill window after being informed this week by Parks Canada.

Parks Canada controls about 440 hectares on the north end of Sidney Island, including Sidney Spit, as part of Gulf Islands National Park Reserve. But the majority of the island is privately owned in strata lots and a common area. Earlier this year, residents approved Parks Canada’s plan for deer eradication in a narrow 52% vote.

The plan to use private contractors to kill the fallow deer and restore native plants on the nine-square-kilometre island at a cost of $5.9 million has divided the island.

Those in favour want the fallow deer gone while those against favour continued private hunting that they say has winnowed the population of fallow deer to fewer than 200 animals.

Few of the 111 private property owners are expected to be on Sidney Island during the aerial and land hunt, said resident Paul Lalonde, who opposes the cull and had written to the RCMP’s chief firearms officer asking that the permits not be issued.

Freedom of Information documents acquired by Lalonde show that Coastal Conservation and its contractor, White Buffalo, will use restricted semi-automatic assault-style rifles to dispatch the deer.

And they will be equipped with suppressors, or silencers, using .223-calibre ammunition with extended magazines holding up to 30 rounds, he said.

J.D. Tuccille: American Jews load up on guns in bid for self-defence

Amidst a flurry of antisemitic outbursts and violence, American Jews are flocking to buy firearms and training in their use. They’re the latest subgroup of Americans not generally considered traditional gun owners who recently became interested in acquiring the means for self-defence. Jews join Muslims, Blacks, women and people with left-leaning politics in concluding that government is either incapable of protecting them or disinterested in the responsibility, leaving individuals to take on the task themselves.

In this, the new ranks of gun owners join good company amidst a national surge in gun purchases.
