First Nations coalition calls for renewal of salmon farming licences – March 30, 2022

March 30, 2022 at 7:19 am  Federal, Politics



At a news conference on Parliament Hill, the coalition of First Nations for Finfish Stewardship (FNFFS) from coastal British Columbia calls on the federal government to re-issue licenses for regions that choose to pursue salmon fishing. Speaking to reporters are Dallas Smith (spokesperson for the coalition), Isiah Robinson (chief of the Kitasoo Xai’xais First Nation), and Leslie Walkus (councillor of the Gwa’sala-’Nakwaxda’xw First Nation). The members also outline their concerns that their rights and economic decisions for their communities are being ignored, and they discuss their recent socio-economic report which highlights the potential impacts to several B.C. communities if the licences are not renewed.
