Ask your MP to support Bill C-228

Open-pen salmon farms put our wild salmon at risk from disease. It's past time for government action to protect our wild salmon.

Tell your local Member of Parliament that you support moving BC's open-pen salmon feedlots to closed containment and ask for their vote to pass Bill C-228.

On February 24th, 2016 Fin Donnelly, MP (Port Moody -Coquitlam) introduced Bill C-228, to amend the Fisheries Act to protect wild salmon from the dangers of open-pen salmon farms. Second reading will take place in Fall 2016.
