Courtenay-Alberni NDP MP Gord Johns is asking the Liberal Government to stick to its promise of transiting to closed pen fish farms by 2025.
"The Liberals promised they would move to on-land, closed containment salmon farms on the BC coast by 2025. Now they're saying they won't even have a plan until 2025. It's too long to wait for a plan, people need action," said Johns.
"People across my riding depend on wild salmon, and with historic lows in salmon returns the government has to act immediately to get the transition started as soon as possible"
