October 16, 2020 – Fisheries for Communities conducted a survey of all 2020 BC MLA candidates to determine whether they would support BC seafood and fish harvesters, and coastal communities in their platform. A total of 48 MLA candidates responded to survey questions, and statements were given by the NDP, BC Liberal, Libertarian, and Green party.
The 2020 election comes at a time when there is a need for strong provincial leadership to support the livelihoods of seafood harvesters, and the coastal communities of BC. Current fisheries management in BC is not meeting the needs of our fish harvesters, and increasingly creating a desperate situation in rural coastal communities.
November 3, 2020 – We have updated the results of our survey with the results of the election. See how elected MLAs responded to our survey below.
