Bear Activity In Spring

Fishin’ Alberta With Paul Chaisson

This week I thought I would write about bear safety. Bears are on the move in spring after a long time hibernating.

They are hungry and may have had a litter of bear cubs. Bears are quite afraid of people and they are quite protective of their cubs. This increases the danger of confrontation with people.

When spending time in those areas that have bear presence make noise while out and about. A simple bell attached to your jacket is a good way letting them know you are there.

This short video has some good tips for dealing with aggressive bears.

Marc Emery Claims Smoking Marijuana Makes People Better Drivers

Marc Emery Claims
Canada’s self-proclaimed “Prince of Pot” claims smoking marijuana makes people better drivers, just days after the federal government released its highly anticipated bill to legalize pot.

Marc Emery told Global’s Jeff McArthur Monday on The Morning Show that he smokes and drives every day and maintains he has never been in a car accident.

“Remember, pot doesn’t impair you,” Emery said. “This idea, one of the many myths I have to clear out in the next 18 months, is that pots impairs you. Marijuana makes you more self-aware of your situation, so you’ll be a better driver if you smoke pot regularly.”
