On May 1, the Parliamentary Outdoor Caucus Association of Canada hosted a reception to reveal the new Caucus logo. During the reception, Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation (CSF) Board of Directors member Phil Morlock of Shimano American Corporation, was awarded the first Honorary Membership to the Parliamentary Outdoor Caucus for his long-time advocacy for our outdoor heritage in Canada.
The award was presented by Member of Parliament Gudie Hutchings and Bob Zimmer.
Modeled after the Congressional Sportsmen’s Caucus, the Parliamentary Outdoor Caucus is one of the largest all-party caucuses on Parliament Hill. Its mission is to entrench in law, fishing, hunting, trapping and shooting sports as acceptable, traditional, environmentally-sustainable outdoor heritage activities with a safety credo and a conservation ethic as our highest priorities.
CSF congratulates Phil Morlock and commends the Parliamentary Outdoor Caucus for recognizing the rich outdoor traditions of Canadian sportsmen and women within Parliament.
