Safe Salmon: Now is the time to stand up for wild salmon like never before!

Now is the time to stand up for wild salmon like never before!

With rumours of a summer election call and every pollster in the country remarking on the Liberal lead, this is the very most critical time for action.  Politicians are taking the public’s temperature prior to writing their election platforms and the polls are telling them that in B.C., concern for wild salmon is tied as a top-of-mind concern for voters!

All MPs need to be told that your concern for wild salmon demands real action on removing salmon farms—not transitioning them to some fantastic new technology, but removing them—from B.C. waters for good.

Living Oceans partnered with Watershed Watch and Georgia Strait Alliance to bring you an easy tool to use to write you MP from our Safe Salmon website. Two clicks will do it: write today! If you can take a minute to personalize your letter, it will be even more effective.  Either way, please share the tool widely and encourage everyone you know to sign—a simple email to your friends and family asking them to consider writing is the best way we can increase the impact of this campaign.

After the election call, as the parties line up their candidates, we’ll be offering you another opportunity to address all the candidates in your riding.  Stay tuned for that one and let’s be sure we’ve done everything we can to elect a government that will, finally, rid our precious coastal salmon habitat of the pestilence and disease that these farms have spread.
