Global TV This Week, River And Fishing Issues
« on: November 24, 2008, 05:16:41 PM »

Received this notice today.

Dear River Advocates,

Two river issues in the news this week may be of
interest to you...

New Opinion Poll
Supports the Flathead River
Watch for a story on the Flathead River on
Global TV News tonight (Monday) at 6:00 PM.
A recent poll shows strong public support for
better protection of the river.  The Flathead
(in the East Kootenays) is one of BC's most
endangered rivers, due to a proposed open-pit
coal mine in the watershed.  Mark Angelo
and others are interviewed tonight on
Global News.

Better Protection for Fraser Sturgeon
On Tuesday or Wednesday of this week, watch
for a Global News story on the "Heart of the Fraser"
campaign, which seeks to better protect the
"gravel stretch" of the Fraser between Hope and
Mission --- this section contains the province's
greatest sturgeon population and largest
salmon runs.

Thanks for your interest in BC Rivers.
