Conservation officer fired for refusing to kill bear cubs sues to get his job back

A former B.C. conservation officer who made international headlines in 2015 for refusing to kill two orphaned bear cubs is suing to get his job back and his lost pay returned.

In a new court action, Bryce Casavant — who has spent five years fighting his union and employer to return to his job with the B.C. Conservation Officer Service — argues his dismissal has now been proven to be invalid.
