i do think most people care about the issues, but if you want people to see it and participate it needs to be in a section with more traffic.

Since a few people mentioned the issue or issues, what is it?

They asked other questions beside that plus it wasn't just a yes or no question. Besides this group doesn't have the power to close anything to fishing. It's a not for profit non-government body that's looking for members and donations. That's what it's really about.

Here's more about what the Georgia Straight Alliance think needs to be done to save Southern Resident Whales -

they say we need more chinook salmon for the whales to eat...scary!

Please, no eye rolling, but I'm lazy this evening, and the Canucks are winning so far: could someone list, from most to least, and with percentages, if possible, the user groups that take Chinook? Including pinnipeds too, if possible.
