A trapper from northern Alberta is in a fight with Parks Canada after his hunting cabin was removed from Wood Buffalo National Park.

Parks Canada said regulations didn’t allow for hunting cabins in the area.

He’s now requesting the backing of treaty members from across Canada.

    If he calls it a “hunting cabin” and Parks Canada agrees – they have every right to move it (but not destroy it).

    If, on the other hand, it is in fact a trapper’s cabin and he holds a valid trapping license for the area – that’s an entirely different matter!!

    Like it or not, if the area is ceded territory, Parks Canada has the last say.
