    Exclamation Will Expanded Marine Protected Areas End Fishing on BC’s Coast?

    According to a recent Global News article, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced that if he wins re-election, “…one-fourth of [Canada’s] oceans will be given protected status by 2025 under a re-elected Liberal government.”


    While everyone likes the idea of protecting the environment, disclosure to the general public of exactly what this means and how that would happen, has been limited.


    What we do know is that in 2019, the DFO under Jonathan Wilkinson (Lib) implemented fishing closures to “protect the habitat of SRKW (Southern Resident Killer Whales)” and later, the DFO enacted more closures to help the Fraser River Chinook as a “Species at Risk.” But what is the DFO talking about when they say “protective status?” They are talking about increasing areas restricted to recreational fishing.


    Imagine Barkley Sound, Nootka Sound, Johnstone Strait, The Strait of Georgia, and the Juan De Fuca Strait all being closed to sport fishing because they are designated as (MPAs) Marine Protected Areas...

    I don't think that idiot can do anything that can't be undone.
    Canadians have an intelligence test coming up.

    When you take away your own right to defend yourself, you are a sheep.
    - We need a study to study the study. If the study that studied the study does not concur with the studied study’s findings, we will need a study to study the study that studied the study.
