Dear Prime Minister Trudeau
80 Wellington Street
Ottawa Ontario, K1A 0A2
I am a resident of Pender Island which is surrounded by the Salish Sea, home to the threatened Orca J Pod. I am deeply concerned about their survival and I would like the federal government to do more to protect them.
They are starving due to a scarcity of Chinook Salmon. I believe the Department of Fisheries and Oceans should completely close all marine harvest of Chinook Salmon. Their ability to hunt salmon is also jeopardized by the whale watching boats. I support a complete ban of whale watching for Southern Resident Orcas.
Finally I support all measures you can take to minimize excessive noise from boats. Imposing a speed limit and mandating noise reduction technology are two mechanisms that should be employed.
I urge you to put an immediate halt to any fossil fuel expansion projects and support renewables.
The Southern Resident Orcas are the canaries in the mine and their impending extinction is symptomatic of the potential for worse to come unless we act now!
Please keep me informed regarding these critical issues. Save Our Whales!
