Return of the Christina Lake pot bears

Well, I couldn’t resist. I did another installment of the Christina Lake pot bears story for the Globe.

I decided I should try and talk to Allen Piche, the man who has plead guilty to feeding them, so I tracked him down via Facebook. I’m glad I did as he told me a great tale…
