Defund DFO Movement
« on: July 24, 2020, 12:17:37 PM »

This is the beginning of a movement that is much beyond "Conservationists & Anglers" as the heading would suggest:

Already there are FN's, Scientists (many within the Department itself) and Industry onside with the fore mentioned groups. Their backing is rather impressive, and they are in the process of organizing even more support as I type. Their focus is not actually on the "defunding" of DFO, rather the complete dismantling and restructuring of Fisheries and Oceans with a view towards separating politics from the science of fisheries management.

This is something I feel is long overdue, and something I not only fully support, but am active in.

Stay Tuned, there will be MUCH more coming down the pipe in this regard in the next while...
