"british colombia" Discussed on Beekeeping Today Podcast
"Everybody. A with us now is vinh eric speaker from the washy washington department of agriculture span. Welcome back to keeping today podcast. Thank you it's going to be here. Good to see against then see you to twenty. Twenty was an exciting year for for Not only dealing with covert and everything but The asian giant hornet became on. The was the spotlight for you. Yeah it was pretty busy year for us. It's a washington state department of agriculture. And you know it really it all kinda started in two thousand nineteen when you know. Our neighbors to the north and british columbia actually found in destroyed a nest of Asian giant hornet and it really raised eyebrows. Because arda what help find that was They were caught attacking beehives already. And you know there's some that feel that this is a rare event but really not what we've experienced here because You know the the initial detection in british columbia. was a result of them attacking behinds and some beekeepers working together and making sure that that high got taken out We had actually started looking for different hornets earlier in the year. Anyway because we haven't done it in a long time and ironically Are invasive species. Pamphlet ended up getting a page on invasive hornets in october of twenty nineteen. Before we even got our first one and so we were in some ways a little ahead of the curve there so that so that was good But what we really didn't expect was twenty in two thousand nineteen You know the weekend of december aides to get basically a report of a live aren't flying around and and you know everything that transpired after that Happened very quickly But i mean i can recap a little short of what we went through and a lot of these things Actually it's kinda funny were Well documented by the discovery channel in a movie that came out on february twenty s. And i have to say you know as as a longtime entomologist. And i'm sitting there watching one of those shows and beekeeper that i know pops up on a commercial talking about asian giant and so that was Pretty trippy but you know that particular show in it's called attack of the murder hornets. Even though it's it's set up is going to. You know to be dramatic. It does actually a pretty good job. Kinda catching the whole story of tracking down this nast and and taking it out Last year let me ask you just because you brought it up. The sensationalism of murder hornet tag as an entomologist. Who's dealing with this in for the state of washington is that helped or hindered you Both obviously anytime Attention comes to a program that you're in charge of If the more people know about it the easier it is for you. Sometimes to get things done But sometimes too many people can know about it and become overly concerned about things that maybe they don't need to be concerned about murder hornets. Kind of a bad name to us. Because they're not really you know flying around murdering people certainly murdering other insects. Yes but you know it wouldn't be my first choice. And in fact you know for several decades. Most folks have called that one Here in the united states at least asian giant hornet because it's from asia. It's the largest hornet and you know the seems to be a pretty straightforward common name but there were others the the reporter who ended up publicizing that one. It was actually researching another one. The giant killer. You know which is really great and got a quote from a japanese researcher who said we don't call them that here at all we just call them murder harnett and he liked it so he went with that one Turns turns out in asia. You know my wife is from asia and you know we have a lot of friends there. And i have a lot of facebook friends around the world. Really they call it. Big headed tiger be Most commonly but That really doesn't roll off the tongue. I actually personally like yet killer too. I mean if you're going to be scary sensational that one sounds really scary but murder. Hornets seems to fit the bill for this country. And certainly in the time we were living in and that one's out of the bag and it's not going back in so that's right It doesn't matter how i feel about it there. it was. It was pretty exciting because we we actually got a quite a bit of cooperation immediately and particularly from our counterparts at the usda and davis and Also our counterparts in british colombia. I mean my birthdays around christmas time and Sadly living here in civic northwest. I'm a diehard penguins fan and the penguins just happened to be playing in vancouver and it worked out that my wife traded me to a you know Go see my pittsburgh. Penguins play up in vancouver and paul van door with british columbia. Met with me to get a specimen so that we had something to use for outreach and this was before christmas and twenty nineteen and so you know we're talking we discover the saying Through outreach on december eight and you know. We already have outreach material before christmas which is wonderful and turns out it was it was needed. I mean not only wants everybody heard about it Where they interested to learn all about it they wanted to see it and so to have some actual specimens that were collected in north america. We can't thank them enough so basically you know it was. It was really good to have this cooperation from a neighboring province. That had already dealt with the problem. So so that was great and then um the federal government took it very seriously immediately. Because you know it's an actionable pest and We were able to get together with them. Like the first week of january and that was great Because what came out of that meeting wasn't just all of kind of saying you know we had actually talked about this years ago. What we would do if the scott here now. It seems like it's here. Should we put these plans into play or should we just go back and reassess a little and see if there's something else we should do and they ended up agreeing to do what's called New new guidelines basically and Normally these can take some time but they produce them very quickly for us and why that was important is it really doesn't matter what i get up on camera and say. Hey washington is going to do this. You're going to have people that love the idea. And you're going to have naysayers and so you always want you know you're you're cooperators and your federal counterparts and Folks within in the academic community kind of backing you up and saying yeah this is the right plan of action and that's really what the response guidelines did for us. We were able to choose traps that we had of already decided on there they were. I mean they were right there on the response guidelines. This is a solid trap. They use it in korea. They use it in japan. By the way it's a you know. Sixty four ounce bottle that anybody could get expensive for by the way. Here's seven or eight different kinds of bay two years and so we were able to choose one that we felt people could readily purchasing the local grocery store and as it turned out we were able to put together a really good citizen scientist trapping program. backed up by you know several years of research compiled all in one place by the by the folks who are responsible. Actually for responding to this and They backed it up by getting.

We needed it and navan tears. We coordinate with the with the organizers of the gio woodstock to get the volunteers for our area and then we would run that part we get on tears assigned difference in that and it was work. But it's one of those things that we enjoy doing something where we could be giving back to the hobby that we love so much so we. We've done it for and we've done it for a couple of other mega events other places the first going in in georgia. We ran the travel bug area four. We ran helped. Run one up in Canada one year.

All over the world through geocaching that we've just made.

"Whether you're somebody who enjoys joys the rodeo whether you're somebody who raises beef or hogs chickens i mean we see here no berta where people did a sit in on how to write a turkey farm not too long ago and create a biosecurity hazard on that farm and interrupted with that lawful farming practice. We only to stand together and like i said an attack on one is an attack on all and if they can take away Say the for lack of a better term trophy hunting and For those of us that might not be trophy hunters We sit back say well. It doesn't affect me well. Guess what your next Once they moved the goalposts A little bit further they move. The yardsticks down the field you're next There's a tax rate now on farming communities. There's a tax rate now coming from from all angles and look at. It's largely coming from people who You know It's not good enough for them that they choose their own lifestyle. They need to be able to seem to choose everybody else's lifestyle for them and It's a really really frustrating things. So i think we can do some smart things I don't you know we. We shouldn't buy into their language and their rhetoric. We should be using our own language. We should be calling. I'll hunting is conservation hunting in my opinion Whether with whatever the motives happened to be and We are ethical people. We create jobs and opportunity. And you know we just need to We just need to stick together on these things and create a different narrative and just remind people with acts up but we can make our own Emotional appeals as well We can make appeals to the fact that some people actually depend on Subsistence lifestyles People that live in remote parts of even british columbia alberta the northwest territories nunavut and the yukon and other parts of canada actually rely on filling their freezers with wild game mousse or an elk or caribou If it's available to them it is a part of their food source and its supplements You know the ability for them to feed their family So you know. Various there is no reason that That we should be allowing this bizarre bizarre argument. And it's an emotional argument and we just have to take a look the government of and ep. If i remember. Car the governor of bbc if i remember correctly even sad. The minister actually said When they announced the closure of the grizzly bear hunt. Nbc a science evidence based decision. It was purely emotional absolutely dick. So what's the consequence of that decision. The consequence of that decision is going to be increased. Grizzly bear populations In the next twenty years based on their reproductive capacity and you're going to have Wildlife and While that human conflicts that will emerge people that live in the proximity to grizzly. bears will have higher risks. because there's going to be more encounters. The grizzly bears going to expand their territory potentially moving into areas where they're going to be in conflict with livestock and the ranching community and none of this affects somebody in downtown victoria or downtown vancouver and yet they're making that determination on enforcing their opinions and feelings on people who live with a completely different reality out in rural or a semi wild environment and You know these are going to be problem. we're going to see it. You will see Somebody somebody somewhere in the near future. In british colombia will be killed by grizzly bear. And it will be because. There's a lot more. Grizzly bears and that human conflict will inevitably happen. There isn't a massive amount of interactions right now with mountain. Lions where you are specifically on vancouver island..

Trudeau made an announcement promising eighty two billion dollars to help Canadians in these times. Our government is taking extraordinary measures.

The continuing Wet'suwet'en pipeline dispute
"This is native America calling. I'm Tara Gate. Would this morning. Ontario provincial police moved in on the tiny data. Mohawk railway blockade taking several of those standing in solidarity with some of the whistle whitten hereditary chiefs and those backing them into custody. This area is recognized as traditional Mohawk territory. It's the latest action in the ongoing fight over the coastal gasoline pipeline plan for would so it in traditional territory in British Colombia. This Mohawk Stan is one of many in solidarity with the movement to try and stop this pipeline route. The four hundred mile pipeline is proposed to carry natural gas across British Columbia twenty-first nations along the pipeline route have signed on to the project but some hereditary chiefs of the wit. Sohan are opposed to the main Opposed and maintain. They have say over what happens because of a nineteen ninety seven court decision on Friday Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. Said the barricades must come down. Canadians have been patient. Our government has been patient but it has been two weeks and the barricades need to come down the issue. We face today began with disagreement over a provincial natural gas pipeline in British Columbia. What was a matter of provincial? Jurisdiction has since turned into a broader question on the nature and extent of indigenous rights resulting in blockades across the country. That's why the federal government had to involve itself directly and a week and a half ago both to address these underlying issues and restore sale rail. Service Flea engaged from day. One are ministers have engaged directly with indigenous leaders and premieres are work was always focused on finding a peaceful and lasting resolution in a way that builds trust and respect among parties involved. That focus does not change. This is a complex issue and the situation we now find ourselves in is a delicate one. History has taught us how governments can make matters worse if they fail to exhaust all other possible avenues when some urged us to use force immediately we chose dialogue and mutual respect when others urged us to give up. We extended a hand in good faith. And what you just heard comes from audio from C. TV. We'll hear more about all of this coming up here but when we talk about different stances that tribal nations are taking. We want to hear from you today. we'll also hear from multiple sides of the issue and we want to hear your thoughts again. What do you think about this? Fight over gas pipeline in Canada. Do you really to it. Something that maybe you even faced in urination Here in the States. All opinions are welcomed. The number is one eight hundred nine six two eight four eight. That's also one eight hundred nine nine native and today we're going to start off by saying hello to chief Dan George. He is an elected chief of the Burns Lake Ben and our pleasure to have him here. Chief George Welcome. Thank you for inviting me to Data American calling. Thank you very much. I appreciate you being here and Chief. George tells a little bit about where things stand with you. Your band signed onto the coastal. Gasoline pipeline Tells us a little bit about why that decision was made well if you know northern BC we've had a mountain endemic that devastated Eighty percent of all defined in BC and in the northern in two years. Mostly Pine for her. So that was that was a livelihood for most First Nation people myself is a logger for twenty years and a lot of a lot of search nation. People are in the logging industry but now that the MO pining has devastated our force. The logging indices going downhill very fast right now and there's still opportunities for US and north. We don't have time real estate like they do like some of the bands and Vancouver and In so use area where they have prime released real estate that they can lead hope for millions of dollars. We've got nothing into north. This pipeline was once in a lifetime opportunity for us to put our people back to work. So that's that's why I had a community vote and Eighty percent of my community voted to sign up for the L. N. G. So negotiate the best deal. I could for my people. So that's why I signed on in chief George. We hear a lot of times in the news. And we're also very careful to also say Hereditary chiefs Because that is a little bit different from elected officials in. Tell me the difference between the two and your understanding of the roles in when we do here hereditary chief say Our Word is what should be listened to your thoughts. Well the difference between An elected chief like myself is we. We have different clans in our communities. And what a rectory chief does is they. Look after one clan of people like I'm a beaver clan so we ever see my head. Cheese looks after the Bieber clan and that bear clan and the Cariboo clan but as an elected chief I look after everybody. I have no discrimination around which clan you're from we look after everybody has a whole and those elected those hereditary chiefs live in our communities. And where did they get their housing from from the cheeks the elected chiefs we give them housing? We pay for their guys. We pay for everything and another thing. Also is you gotta realize too the officer where to read Jerry Chiefs In smithers their offices. Run by natural gas and a lot of the chiefs. Homes are run by natural gas also and it you you support the oil and gas industry like a lot of our closys made out of the petroleum byproducts to and and we drive trucks and drive all kinds of vehicles are using propane and in the camps also that that if you look at their supporting that industry no matter how you look at it in just understanding more about you know how this works and of course these are also members of tribes in people that elected officials are to have their ears open to in. How do you weigh this when you do have people Who are you know? Still citizens of nations whether they be a hereditary chief. And they're saying we don't want this what do you do? How do you weigh some of that? And how do you find common ground? Is there such a thing? Glad chief George There is common gown is like we're all went to it and people and they voted for the natural gas Hereditary chiefs gotta follow what the people want. Just like US elected chief all All the different clans on our in our community. We'd follow what they want us to do. They give us a mandate to do what we need to do. So we follow that. But if you look at the grand jury change they gotta follow what people are saying. And these hereditary chiefs are not
