„Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is not backing down on his vow to ban netpen farming in British Columbia by 2025.
In a letter sent Friday to the country’s new Minister of Fisheries, Bernadette Jordan, Trudeau laid out the mandates for her to accomplish following her agreement to serve in the role.
„As Minister of Fisheries, Oceans and the Canadian Coast Guard, you will lead the government’s work to protect and promote our three oceans and our waterways, sustain and rebuild the fisheries, and ensure that they remain healthy for future generations, while providing important economic opportunities to Canadians and coastal communities,“ he wrote.“
