This is an article on Soo Today:

William R. Hedlund of Batchawana Bay Wilderness Camps and Air Service - an operation north of Sault Ste. Marie - was fined $5,000 on two counts for being party to the offence of unlawfully hunting a game mammal.

He should have lost his Tourist Outfitters Licence- licence to sell hunting and fishing licences and his hunting privleges-yet he will be allowed to continue operations as normal, make $$$$$ of of tourists. His share of tags should be alloted to the mooose lottery for the gereral population. A $5000 fine is not severe enough - he likely made more than that on the sale of the tags.

Shame on Justice of the Peace Paula Nichols and the Ministry of Natural Resources.

You are conflating justice with the Canadian legal system. One has little to nothing to do with the other. It would seem our judges go to the highest bidder. Of course if the individual was of a noticeable minority the outcome was a foregone conclusion.
