A Manitoba man has been fined $600 for failing to advise the ministry of a change in his residency.


Dale McClintock of Stonewall, Manitoba, pleaded guilty to failing to notify the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry of a change in his residency.


Court heard that in December 2014, McClintock moved to Stonewall, Manitoba, from Kenora. In May 2015, he had a friend in the Kenora area buy him a moose licence and apply in the adult draw on his behalf. McClintock was not eligible as his primary residence was no longer in Ontario.


Justice of the Peace Roger McCraw Jr. heard the case in the Ontario Court of Justice, Kenora, on April 5, 2016.


The ministry reminds the public that holders of an Outdoors Card who change their address are required to report this change to the ministry within 10 days of the change.
