Joint letter to Minister Kathryn McGarry (Ontario Natural Resources and Forestry) regarding the draft provincial Wetland Conservation Strategy outlining nine key issues and recommendations to fulfil the Premier’s pledge “that by 2025 the loss of wetlands in our province will be reversed”.
WCS Canada Comments - Fisheries Act Update - March 2016
We request that previous habitat protections of the federal Fisheries Act, which were weakened by omnibus Bill C-38 in 2012, be reinstated immediately. We further recommend improved monitoring and enforcement, and recommend that consultations and deliberations begin in the near term on incorporating other "modern safeguards" into the Fisheries Act with a view of completing the process within a two-year time frame. In line with the Minister's mandate letter, the Fisheries Act should also include protection for recognized and affirmed Treaty and Aboriginal rights that ensures healthy fish populations and habitat to sustain these rights in perpetuity.
