Since becoming your MP, I’ve heard from so many of you about the importance of a renewed Fraser River estuary management process. That is why I placed on notice my first Motion: Urban and Industrial Development Management within the Fraser River Estuary (M-60). The Fraser River estuary is a diverse and productive ecosystem that supports hundreds of species at risk, including salmon and southern resident killer whales. However, continued pressure from poor management, development and climate change threaten the sustainability of the Fraser River estuary’s health. The Fraser River estuary would benefit from a regional planning approach, similar to FREMP, that includes Indigenous Guardians and balances the needs of the ecosystem, people, and the economy.
Add your name to let the Federal Government know you care about the Fraser River Estuary and want them to immediately adopt Motion M-60: Urban and Industrial Development Management within the Fraser River Estuary, which calls on the government to work with provincial, Indigenous and local governments to reinstate a modernized, inter-governmental and multi-stakeholder committee, co-managed with Indigenous nations similar to the former Fraser River Estuary Management Program.
Thank you for your support.
Take the next step and help spread the word.
