BC Judge Appointed to Lead Judicial Review of Fraser Collapse


British Columbia Supreme Court Justice Bruce Cohen has been appointed to oversee the Judicial inquiry into the collapse of Fraser River Sockeye with a report due out August 2011. Cohen has been directed to investigate at, "as broad a scope as possible" and the investigation will encompass a wide range potential factors in the decline, "including but not limited to, the impact of environmental changes along the Fraser River, marine environmental conditions, aquaculture, predators, diseases, water temperature and other factors.”In the meantime, we'll just have to hold our breath and hope the next two returns of Sockeye on the Fraser fare better than this years. More information in the globe and mail...
