Online Petition - National Sustainable Seafood Day

M-435 — October 16, 2013 — Mr. Donnelly (New Westminster—Coquitlam) — That, in the opinion of the House, the government should designate March 18 as "National Sustainable Seafood Day".

• Overfishing and destructive fishing practices are threatening marine life
and the health of our oceans

• Over 120 million people are dependent on fish as part of their income,
but over the last century wild fish populations have declined dramatically

• Canadian consumers want to support sustainable seafood options

• Canadian seafood industries are providing increased opportunities for
consumers to make sustainable seafood purchases

YES, I support Fin's private member's motion calling on Canada
to designate March 18 as National Sustainable Seafood Day.
