Original language of petition: English
We, the undersigned residents of Canada, draw the attention of the Government of Canada to the following:
THEREFORE, we call upon the Government of Canada to commit to a timeline and a plan that respects and addresses the 20 recommendations laid out in the House of Commons Standing Committee on Fisheries and Oceans entitled "West Coast Fisheries: Sharing Risks and Benefits".
On March 11, 2020, the Parliamentary Standing Committee on Fisheries and Oceans (FOPO) re-tabled their report entitled “West Coast Fisheries: Sharing Risks and Benefits” in the current session. While the tabling of the Government Response during the previous session was affected by the timing of the 2019 Federal election, Fisheries and Oceans Canada values FOPO’s hard work and dedication to highlighting ways to make our fisheries more environmentally and economically sustainable for present and future generations of Canadians. Pursuant to Standing Order 109, the Government of Canada will provide a response to the report within 120 days of tabling.
Only validated signatures are counted towards the total number of signatures.
