I won’t use the acronym for those words decorously deployed by many when writing up this story; it’s an acronym coined by the man who came up with this stunt, and every time the media coyly use it, we help that creep sell one of his lousy T-shirts.

Killing to Preserve; good example of the delusions people can maintain to justify doing whatever they want to do. http://globalnews.ca/news/2009963/conservation-hunt-cory-knowlton-paid-350k-to-kill-endangered-black-rhino/
There is no shortage of online vitriol being lobbed at Texas millionaire and celebrity game hunter Cory Knowlton after he cashed in on his chance to kill a rare black rhinoceros in Namibia.

Excellent.
They just shut down the marine communications centre in Vancouver and moved it to Victoria, and this happens.

Boat operators in Vancouver are worried after the Canadian Coast Guard's vessel traffic services system in Georgia Strait lost radio communication for 15 minutes on Sunday night.
