Mayor calls for Bear Awareness

Mayor Bill Beamish of the Town of Gibsons focused on co-existence with bears in this month’s “Talk of the Town” message from Council. He acknowledged that humans – residents, businesses, waste collection, the COS, and Council – must work together to change our behaviours so that easily accessible garbage, fruit windfall, bird feeders, dirty BBQs and other attractants do not create so-called ‚Äúproblem bears”. Read the full address here for the Mayor’s list of immediate actions you can take towards having “respect for their natural behaviour, as demonstrated by more thoughtful behaviour of our own”.
