Whitehorse hunter fined for flouting court order

A Whitehorse man has been fined $3,000 for twice obtaining Yukon hunting licences even though a court had ordered him not to.

A Whitehorse man has been fined $3,000 for twice obtaining Yukon hunting licences even though a court had ordered him not to.

In Yukon court yesterday, justice of the peace Sharman Morrison-Harvey sentenced Edward Bernier to pay the TIPP (Turn in Poachers and Polluters) reward fund. Bernier pleaded guilty to breaching a court order twice when he got licences in 2014 and 2015.

According to Environment Yukon, there’s no evidence he actually used the licences to hunt.

Back in May 2013, Bernier was found guilty of meat wastage and another offence related to a moose hunt in the Faro area in September 2012.

Territorial Court Judge Michael Cozens fined him $7,500, plus an additional $1,125 court surcharge.

He was not supposed to get a licence until May 2017.

After these latest charges, he is banned from hunting for seven years and banned from accompanying anyone hunting for the next five.
