"20 fish farm leases expire on June 20th, and we need them to stay expired! Fish farms are spreading parasites and diseases to our wild salmon, and their time is up.
But Premier Horgan has still not decided what to do, so we need to give him and his government a nudge and make sure he does his job to defend our wild salmon and save our wild salmon jobs.
Nothing gets the attention of elected officials more than regular, everyday voters showing up at their local offices in droves, so come join with friends and neighbours and wild salmon defenders from all walks of life to make your voice heard!
We need to send a strong message that wild salmon support us all. They are a source of natural wealth that give us food and culture, connect us to our families, feed our wildlife and support our ecosystems, and provide us with livelihoods. We will not let foreign-owned fish farms wipe out wild salmon!
So dress in your work clothes or your BC coastal best: plaid, gumboots, hip-waders & stanfields! Or bring your fishing gear and park your boat out front! We need to send our elected politicians a message.
See you on at noon on June 13th!"
