Fin in the House: Presenting a petition calling for a transition to safe land-based closed containment technology

Mr. Fin Donnelly (Port Moody—Coquitlam, NDP): Mr. Speaker, I rise to table a petition to the House of Commons where the petitioners call on the Government of Canada to immediately transition the open net salmon farm industry to safe land-based closed containment technology. They say Canada needs to invest in a safe, sustainable industry that protects Pacific or wild salmon, maintains employment, develops new technologies, jobs and export opportunities. The petitioners are from Sooke and Victoria.
