I commend the initiative of all those who have written letters, attended protests and meetings, etc. but none of these actions will make a difference. The Government and DFO are not really concerned with the status of salmon stocks - if they were they would have done something significant to rebuild them years ago. Todays fight is all about reconciliation as DFO (and the Liberals) reallocate the resource to First Nations. It doesn't matter what you do, it will not change their ultimate goal. We have been fighting these battles for 60 years over a series of issues all leading to less fish for the public fishery. It all began with the start of net fisheries in Juan de Fuca in 1957 which severely impacted the public fishery. This was the start of angler's becoming organized and led to the formation of the Amalgamated Conservation Society on southern Vancouver Island and their efforts which led to the formation of the Sport Fishing Advisory Board in 1964. For 56 years the SFAB has been advising DFO and where has it gotten us?
