While travelling through Canada on their way home after another successful case the Rescue Rangers witness the two men shooting down great grey owls with tranquilizer darts. Having saved one of the birds from the captors, the owl suggests they should inform the Owl Parliament of what was happening. As a result, Rescue Rangers become official 'agents' of the Parliament and from now on have to fight both criminals and Parliamentary opposition, whose leader isn't interested in their success at all...
