Former Labrador Conservation Officer - On job cuts
The Department of Justice isn’t being spared in the provincial budget cuts.
Eighteen wildlife officers have been laid off.
In Labrador, five vacant wildlife officer positions were also eliminated as a result of the 2013 budget. That leaves just twenty-two officers to enforce regulations for the entire province.
Hollis Yetman worked as a conservation officer. Labrador Morning’s John Gaudi spoke with him about what the cuts mean for Labrador.
