It's official, I just got a call.
The Ban is now lifted for "hunter harvested game meat" from Canada.
There will be a permit system.
All the best
Newfoundland got some very good press on 9/11 when our people went far and beyond normal hospitality for stranded passengers and now is the time to start calling in some of that good will.
A lot of US people are very grateful to Canada for those acts of kindness, even though it was the people of Atlantic Canada and especially the people of Newfoundland who did the most.On 9-11-01 our small town of Gander and many other towns in Newfoundland became directly involved as 77 large jets showed up at our various airports. Gander had 39 jets on the ground and a small town of 15,000 suddenly had 7500 guests to care for. In true Newfoundland tradition, our people shared what they had and did their best to make the unexpected travelers comfortable and welcome. Some were with us for almost a week. Here is a photo from that day, as you can see, parking was a problem..
A few years ago, our head guide Isaac, guided George Bush Sr. when he fished the Lower Gander River, we still have the boat he used.
