Keep Canada Fishing provided every Member of Parliament with a copy of “Elevating Recreational Fishing to a National Priority” and asked for their position on our recommendations.
To date, we have received responses from a handful of representatives. We will be sharing these responses over the coming weeks. We ask that you consider each response carefully when visiting the polls this fall.
Below is a link to a letter from Nick Whalen, Member of Parliament
St. John’s East, Newfoundland and Labrador . We have included a few quotes from Mr. Whalen.
“I am in favor of recreational fishing at our below sustainable levels, throughout the country and to funding adequate science to determine the levels.”
We invite you to review the Canadian Sportfishing Industry Association’s document, Elevating Recreational Fishing to a National Priority, for more details about this very important topic.
As well, if you’ve ever wanted to help support the recreational fishing industry in Canada, now is the time. Keep Canada Fishing is the national voice of Canada’s anglers, and we lead the effort to preserve your right to sustainably fish on our lakes, oceans, rivers and streams. We are your voice on Parliament Hill. If you would like to contribute to our efforts to “Keep Canada Fishing,” you can donate now via PayPal.
