It’s been a full year since the Cohen Commission released its report on the decline of Pacific salmon, yet the federal government has yet to implement any of the recommendations.
This first anniversary of the release of the Commission’s recommendations is an opportune time to remind government to follow the clear direction to rebuild salmon populations.

It’s a decision that will support more than just salmon — bears, killer whales and dozens of other species depend on this incredible fish. Salmon also play a foundational role in our economy, culture and health.
In 2009, a devastatingly low number of sockeye salmon returned to the Fraser River to spawn. The federal government appeared ready to take action on this crisis, launching the Cohen Commission, which developed 75 recommendations to best help salmon populations recover.

Salmon play a foundational role in British Columbia’s economy, culture and health. Let’s give them the protection they deserve.
