Law Amendments, BILL 57 - Environmental Goals & Climate Change Reduction: Public Input
"If this [Open Net-Pen] industry is not good enough for B.C., they are certainly not good enough for us here in Nova Scotia" - Brian Muldoon, CBC News | Nov. 2, 2021
Brian Muldoon had the opportunity earlier this week to present to Nova Scotia's Legislative Standing Committee on Law Amendments regarding Bill No.57 - Environmental Goals & Climate Change Reduction. Of the more than 30 members of the public who spoke, the CBC quoted from Brian's presentation.
"Brian Muldoon with the Health Bays Network, like other presenters, called on the bill to include a phasing out of open net pen fin fish farming. Several presenters pointed to a strong call for this move during public consultation last spring and summer that contributed to the bill tabled by the Tories last week.Muldoon pointed to actions already underway in British Columbia to end the practice there by 2025."
"If this industry is not good enough for B.C., they are certainly not good enough for us here in Nova Scotia," he said."
