a hand gun in canada? not going to happen.
Actually, people working in remote areas in Northern Canada can get permits to carry. Usually reserved for trappers and prospectors/geologists (my cousin had a carry permit for a large frame S&W for years when he did field geo work).

It is just a HUGE pain in the ass to get the permit and to keep it current.

Female biologist doing a mountain goat survey in BC was attacked by a Grizz and plunged her fixed blade knife into its neck. Lady has nerves of steel. Bravo.
Holy S***. Amazing she walked away from a bear standing on top of her with wounds that minor. Well done!

If I was in the back country up there and couldnt get a handgun I'd have an 870
slung over my shoulder, always.

just dont understand why those folks cannot carry handguns while they work
In Alaska bios are allowed to carry firearms for protection. This happened in Canada so no second amendment up that way. That’s one pretty tough and level headed individual though.

If it was a hunter getting his ' just deserts' it would be all over the news...

Respect to this Lady.

She will have the ultimate story to tell! It really is kind of a fantasy for all outdoorsman to kill a Grizzly with a big ole Bowie knife.
