    Petition to the Minister of Fisheries, Oceans and the Canadian Coast Guard

    Whereas:
    • The public fishery in British Columbia depends on predictable access to marine and aquatic resources;
    • The public fishery in British Columbia is a source of benefits, including food security, cultural traditions, recreation, mental health, employment and economic opportunity for hundreds of thousands of British Columbians;
    • The Minister of Fisheries, Oceans and Canadian Coast Guard and the Government of Canada have chosen to ignore viable and sustainable proposals from British Columbians for managing fisheries that may encounter Fraser River Chinook;
    • The Minister of Fisheries, Oceans and Canadian Coast Guard and the Government of Canada have failed to implement a coordinated, properly funded, comprehensive, ecosystem-based recovery plan and strategy to rebuild stocks and habitat for Fraser River Chinook; and
    • The Minister of Fisheries, Oceans and Canadian Coast Guard and the Government of Canada have failed to acknowledge the presence of other abundant Chinook stocks.
    We, the undersigned, citizens of Canada, call upon the Minister of Fisheries, Oceans and the Canadian Coast Guard to amend the Department of Fisheries and Oceans’ 2020 Fraser River Chinook salmon management measures to acknowledge the existence of abundant Chinook stocks elsewhere on the coast and allow avoidance zones and mark selective fisheries that have been proposed for times and places where endangered Fraser River Chinook are absent or unlikely to be present, and provide details to Canadians for the immediate development of a comprehensive recovery strategy and plan for Fraser River stocks of concern to be implemented as soon as possible.

    Come on everyone... Lets sign this and email the Link to everyone who will take the time to add their names to the petition. Just did mine. Took less than 1 min. Emailing friends and family now to do the same. So far there is less than 30 people on this petition which is not acceptable. Let get everyone to you know to sign it.

    Just sent the petition to 15 of the people in my network who would sign it. Will ask them to send the link to others they know.

    With how easy it is to complete the petition and how it takes less than a few mins to asks people we know to complete it, no reason why the numbers shouldn't blow up in next few days.

    For those who didn't or weren't able to show up for the rally on Monday here is a great opportunity to do your part.

    Signed, and thinking how I can spread the word to others.
    I'm not much of f***b**k guy but what if there was a notice we could download and print out
    at home and put up at local tackle shops, marine supply and other good locations. I'm sure there will be a lot more signatures.

    I've already told anyone that has ever stepped foot on my boat that signing this is a requirement of ever being invited back.
