Unprecedented unity across BC to remove open-net pens

BC is the last place on North America’s west coast with ocean-polluting Atlantic salmon farms.

“There is broad consensus that open net fish farms have to go,” says Carla Qualtrough, Liberal MP for Delta.

Qualtrough said the federal government’s commitment was to have the transition away from open-net pens complete by 2025, but it also requires helping communities that are dependent on fish farms to adjust.

Over 120 First Nations and 75% of British Columbians expect the Prime Minister to keep his promise to #endthepens and protect wild Pacific salmon for future generations.
