Our congratulations to Hon. Joyce Murray on this appointment, we wish her success in the continued removal of open net-pen fish farms from B.C.'s coast and in protecting wild salmon. We certainly hope and will expect her to push equally as hard for the same commitment to protect Canada's East Coast as she did for the West.
