In this episode Mark and Curtis are joined MLA Mike Morris from Prince George, British Columbia. Mike is a hunter and trapper and has been an MLA since 2013.

Mike explains how government works and who the real decision makers are in government, what the difference between policy and regulations are, how to find wildlife management policy, how to prepare an effective letter or email to an MLA, what the best way is to build a relationship with an MLA, how form letters and nasty grams get filed in MLA’s offices and whether hunters can ask for judicial reviews of wildlife management decisions.
