Watershed Watch Salmon Society and SkeenaWild Conservation Trust recently released the results from a poll that clearly shows the cultural importance of wild salmon to British Columbians.  The results are highlighted in the Courier-Islander article New poll shows British Columbians think salmon is culturally important.

Watershed Watch Executive Director, Craig Orr, states “This poll clearly shows that Ottawa and the big fishing companies are totally out of step with British Columbian values. British Columbians are clearly against putting commercial interests before local salmon runs, and we want laws to protect salmon habitat more strictly enforced.”
