This election, vote for wild salmon!
Salmon returns in B.C. have plummeted to such an extent that many are calling it a crisis and predicting another disaster like the East Coast cod fishery. We aren’t there yet, but we will be if the federal fisheries department doesn’t take immediate and decisive action to eliminate threats to salmon survival, like open netpen salmon farms. That’s going to require political leadership and that’s where you can pitch in to help wild salmon.
We’ve made it easy for you to tell all of your candidates in the federal election campaign to get the netpens out! Just visit us at www.safesalmon.ca – a few quick clicks is all it will take to send a letter to each of your candidates, demanding action to protect wild salmon.
You can even monitor how your candidates react, whether or not they respond to your letter! Our colleagues at Wild Salmon Forever are holding candidates’ feet to the fire by tracking their responses to a pledge to transition netpens out of the ocean by 2025. See their pledge tracker at https://www.wildfirst.ca/pledge-tracker/
