October 11, 2018

VICTORIA, B.C. – Adam Olsen, B.C. Green Party spokesperson for agriculture, welcomed the publication of the Wild Salmon Advisory Council’s report. Olsen is a member of the Advisory Council, which was formed following his call for the creation of a similar body to advise government on comprehensive policies to protect B.C.’s wild salmon population.

“This report is a result of widespread collaboration and provides government with a clear pathway to develop policies that will protect wild salmon,” said Olsen.

“Protecting wild salmon will advance Indigenous rights and reconciliation, support sustainable economic development and lead to better management of our natural environment.

“It’s clear that British Columbians from all walks of life want action on this file. Now that we have this report, the government should act swiftly to enact policies that will lead to measurable progress.”
