Dauphin – Swan River – Neepawa MP Robert Sopuck has been named the International Legislator of the Year by Safari Club International.
The organization is composed of hunters dedicated to protecting the freedom to hunt and promotes wildlife conservation worldwide.
Sopuck is a lifelong hunter, angler and avid outdoorsman.
In the past he has shown a commitment to protecting the rights of law abiding firearms owners and defending the way of life for Canadian hunters, anglers and shooters.
Just last year Sopuck led the fight against legislation which would alter human relationships with animals and endanger traditional animal use such as hunting, angling, livestock raising and medical research.
