Earlier the week, MP Alistair MacGregor (Cowichan-Malahat-Langford) asked Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to protect our Pacific wild Salmon and Costal Communities.
Question Period – May 1, 2019
Mr. Alistair MacGregor (Cowichan—Malahat—Langford, NDP):
“Mr. Speaker, the west coast suffered through a decade of Conservative mismanagement of Pacific wild salmon, including cuts to DFO and gutting habitat protection. Now we have a Liberal government that has spent billions of dollars on a leaky pipeline and will increase tanker traffic in our sensitive marine environment, putting salmon and whales at risk. Vancouver Island coastal communities have had enough. They want a full recovery plan.
Will the Prime Minister listen to them, and to coastal leaders like Chief Bob Chamberlin, and protect wild salmon?”
