World Water Day – March 22, 2014

WWD2012

World Water Day 2014 is on Saturday, March 22. Deeply connected to local water issues is the uncertain future of British Columbia’s wild salmon stocks. After 18 months of testimony and $26 million spent, the Cohen Commission’s final report “The Uncertain Future of the Fraser River Sockeye,” has outlined 75 recommendations for reversing a decade long decline in salmon populations.

You are invited to have your say along with MP Joyce Murray and a panel of leading experts concerned about BC’s West Coast salmon on Saturday, March 22, 2014.

Panelists

Brian Riddell, president and CEO of the Pacific Salmon Foundation and former DFO top scientist.
Brenda Gaertner, lawyer and lead counsel for the First Nations Coalition before the Cohen Commission.
Jordan Point, executive director of the First Nations Fisheries Council of British Columbia.
Stan Proboszcz, field biologist with Watershed Watch Salmon Society.
