We have been missing certain types of salmon locally for years now. Our salmon population has done a deep dive ["North Island-Powell River MP to meet with fisheries minister," January 8].
This is not good for the Indigenous community of Tla’amin Nation.
The closure of the North Island fisheries will assist the health of our salmon and enable the salmon population to begin to come back. This is crucial for jobs, the traditional way of life for Indigenous people, and the health of our oceans overall.
We rely heavily in Powell River on our ocean.
