I was wondering if anyone else was going to make the connection. Some of the loudest in this thread were cheering on these same groups a year or less ago. Take it one step further and realize that percentage wise the rec sector takes about as many fish as Canada contributes to global co2 emissions (ie; rounding errors). If you're pissed about retention and still want certain segments of the economy at minimum severely restricted or at max done away with totally I suggest applying your same logic where "everyone has to do their part" (no matter the overall effectiveness) and take your lumps. Don't forget your logic that we can be leaders and set an example for the rest of the world because that's worked so well with our competitors regarding enviro standards, human rights, woman's rights, democracy etc. Use the same logic, certainly the FN or other user groups getting fingers pointed at them here will see the rec sector take the hit in stride and follow their lead on retention. Seems plausible eh? Where is Horgan in all of this? I don't care if DFO is Federal, so is the NEB and he doesn't hesitate to jump in there.
