Why is this being done on a week day?  Surely a larger turnout would turn up on a weekend.

Maybe its on a weekday so there are less "weekend warrior" types who may come out and display methods contrary to the intent of the demonstration?

They have been giving First Nations last arge scale drift net openings Saturday and Sunday. Perhaps itís to avoid confrontation.

Also my guess is this will be largely attended by industry and they probably donít want to give up their weekend charters

I hope thats not the real reason to hold it on a wednesday.
They dont want to give up a days charters but expect everyone else to take a day off work?
Poor planning if you ask me.

I filmed this this morning. We did it in one take, apologies if we missed anything that should be added. Some people that wished to take part said it should have been on the weekend but the people that organized this due to commitments had to have it on the this date I have been told. If you wanted to attend you can always support the numerous groups involved. Here is what I filmed this morning. A lot of work by many goes in putting this together. I can not attend tomorrow either due to a commitment made before this date was set but I doing my best to give some notice to what is going on. Remember all those involved are volunteers doing the best they can and one can not always satisfy everyone. I guess those that would like it on the weekend could plan one then.

It's posted on some of the Facebook pages that DFO attended and ticketed 6 people and 4 sets of gear (rod, reel etc) were confiscated. Some people didn't even have licenses?

So when do you think DFO will finally open the Fraser for salmon? Coho bar fishing season will be over soon.
