Important summary of Cohen Inquiry evidence

Watershed Watch presents a “Cliff’s Notes” version of key evidence and testimony from the ongoing Cohen Sockeye Inquiry.
"Concerned that key evidence was hard to access and could become buried and forgotten, we took on the task of summarizing key evidentiary highlights on the many subjects considered during the inquiry, including harvest, habitat, management, conservation, Canada’s Wild Salmon Policy, aquaculture, diseases and other issues.

  1. That is a fabulous resource document. It does seem tragic, shameful and ridiculous that no Harper Party MP or Federal Cabinet Minister or the prime minister would be likely to read it, or be informed of its contents.

    As of a few minutes ago, at least ONE MP has been sent the info. I invite others to do the same:

    "Mr. Strahl,

    I have come across a summary of the Cohen Inquiry on Fraser River salmon. As I understand, the inquiry viewed great volumes of information, which would be hard for anyone comprehend. This condensed version gets the main points across in 75 pages.

    As you are an MP for Fraser River communities, I'm sure this resource would be invaluable to you — and to your fellow MPs.

    Yours sincerely,

    G. Barry Stewart"

    (Include your street address, so your MP will know that you are a bonafide constituent — and not just a ranting flake.)
