Meeting with MPs on proposed Salmon Farm expansion
Watershed Watch is meeting with federal MPs from all parties in B.C. to share your 500 comments opposing the new salmon farms proposed for the B.C. coast. We are also presenting them with a petition with over 2500 signatures calling on the federal government to implement the Cohen Inquiry recommendations.
Our recent meeting with NDP Fisheries Critic Fin Donnelly (MP New Westminster-Coquitlam) generated a commitment to refrain from expanding the open-net farming industry and a commitment to implement the recommendations from the $37M taxpayer-funded Cohen Inquiry.
