    How would explosives be placed to clear material blocking the river when the salmon can't even make it through. I assume everyone has viewed the video and seen the current through there.

    I've heard (could be a rumour) that was an option considered, but the distance required to hold the fish back from a blast where the sediment run off wouldn't have killed them was not feasible.
    What goes around, comes around. Think first, and always act with respect.

    Maybe the "powers that be" should look after the most important salmon bearing river in western Canada....

    The slide occured in October or November last year? Ya think they would have known about it and done something about it before now???

    Not enough tax dollars in the DFO and "Environment and Climate Change Canada" to have a look every now and then???

    And where's the "news" reports on this? They were all over it before the info came out as to when the slide actually happened....

    F***ing joke.

    Absolute sad f****ing joke...

    This whole situation is a total DFO fu#k up, they should all be fired, including the Federal Fisheries minister!!! He stated on live TV that they don't monitor the Fraser very often, are you kidding me, the most important river on the south coast! This happened in late November and he didn't know about it until June?? That's total bullshit, what would it cost to have a chopper pick up a fisheries guy in Hope and fly the canyon once a month? I'll tell you how much, nothing compared to the loss that is now happening! This post isn't aimed at you 604 but it made me say something. There's maybe a million fish staging at the river mouth in the next couple weeks, blow that obstruction outta there and if it makes things worse keep blasting till it's done! As it stands right now we're going to see some major devistations to our Salmon stocks as they've only moved 5000 fish over the slide as of yesterday! Rant over! K

    How many were chastised or jailed over the cod collapse? Same as will see responsibility for the salmon collapse.

    Fish are getting through.
    -acoustic sounders above the have been in place and removed numerous times.
    -What are the numbers of fish that have made it above the slide? Why is DFO not releasing these numbers?
    - 90k sockeye have now reached the slide. If fish were not getting past the slide the back eddy would be black with fish.
    -All the press conferences have been more of a FN appeasement media show

    this whole situation is all smoke and mirrors

    Common sense is so rare today, it should be considered a super power.

    Now, that s awesome stuff right there.
    When they scan the fish, do they take blood pressure and HR readings??...you know, to make sure it wont get a frickin heart attack when it hits the "elevator express"
    Maybe they can play AC/DC "highway to hell" just for their listening pleasure as well.....seems appropriate!!
