Manitoba Premier Brian Pallister is not apologizing for warning that tensions around night hunting are leading to a race war.

In his first news conference since making the comment, Pallister says night hunting is a growing problem and needs to be addressed.

Pallister says he regrets the turn the debate has taken but says he was trying to ease tensions at the time.

Pallister says both indigenous and non-indigenous people want night shooting restricted to ensure the safety of people, property and livestock. (The Canadian Press)
