Retired Biologists Slam DFO


Drs. Gordon Hartman and Casey McAllister, two retired DFO biologists with 85 years of combined experience issue a letter last month slamming the recent performance of DFO. While the agency once stood fast opposing environmental degradation threatening Canadas fisheries resources, it has taken on the role of industry cheerleader recently. This point was made all too obvious by the fact that while the Fraser Sockeye run was literally collapsing under their feet, Fisheries Minister Gail Shea was in Norway promoting salmon farming. See the article in the Victoria Times Colonist.
