Despite not being a hunter himself, John Laforet waded into the brewing debate about safari hunting shows that were scheduled to take place in various cities across Canada. There are groups actively trying to disrupt the events by strong-arming venues into cancelling on the organizers.

Without getting into the issue itself, John argues that the tactics are all wrong, because denying people the right to speak isn’t good for a democratic society. Instead, he urges anti-hunting activists to seek to win the argument they believe in, instead of simply making it so the people they disagree with can’t book a hotel.
