Too Urbanized?

This quote from the CBC's report on cuts to Environment Canada's wildlife programs caught my eye this morning.
Bob Bailey, a hunter and conservationist, was shocked to hear the federal government's support for Canada's 144 National Wildlife Areas has been reduced to nothing.

"I simply can't believe. Have we become this urbanized, have we become this uncaring that these places could be in jeopardy?" said Bailey, who is with the Delta Waterfowl Foundation.
All I have to say to Mr. Bailey and others concerned with the rural environment is, don't blame urban voters for your troubles. Look at the voting patterns in this country and ask yourselves who is voting for a party that would cut the Canadian Wildlife Service when they are running a $10 billion surplus?
