Wow - major news! In response to our petition and the viral video, Fisheries Minister Dominic LeBlanc says he is open to suggestions for improving the Fisheries Act when it comes to protecting wild salmon!
LeBlanc says updates will be ready to introduce to the Fisheries Act early this year -- so key government officials need to hear from you now.
We’ve reached out to the top voices on wild salmon and their suggestions for amending the Fisheries Act are below. We've got an example of an email you can send to politicians, but it's better to write in your own words if you can. After you press send, your email will be sent straight to Federal Fisheries Minister Dominic LeBlanc, BC Environment Minister George Heyman and BC Agriculture Minister Lana Popham.
