Fin in the House: Calling for an emergency order under the Species at Risk Act for Interior Fraser Steelhead.
April 30th, 2018 - 6:40pm
Mr. Fin Donnelly (Port Moody—Coquitlam, NDP): Mr. Speaker, I would also like to table e-petition 1419, which was initiated by Gregory Gordon from Kamloops, B.C. which received 681 signatures. With fewer than 200 fish expected to return to the Thompson River to spawn from a run that once numbered in the thousands and less than 50 expected to return to the Chilcotin River, the situation is urgent. The petitioners call on the Minister of Environment to issue an emergency listing order under the Species at Risk Act for the Interior Fraser steelhead.
