Please support our honourable Minister of Fisheries, Joyce Murray, in her daunting task of removing open-net Atlantic salmon farms on our beautiful B.C. coast when they expire this June.
I know how powerful the professional aquaculture lobby in Ottawa is.
I am proud of our Liberal governance finally doing what is right.
It has been a very long and frustrating road in my hopes and dreams of removing this cancer from our coast.
I worked as a commercial salmon troller for the first 30 of the 50 years that I have lived in Whistler.
I care, and I have witnessed the horrific consequences these feedlots have done to our native salmon.
Please let me know if you can help end this by supporting the choice of not renewing the leases that expire this June.
