2020-02-03 Letter to Minister Responsible, Collapse of West Coast Herring Fishery

TO: Bernadette Jordan
Minister of Fisheries, Oceans, and the Canadian Coast Guard

Dear Minister Jordan,
RE: Herring Fishery, BC
I lived in Nova Scotia from 1974 to 1990.
During that time the cod fishery collapsed.
I now live on Vancouver Island.
The herring fishery is going the way of the cod fishery.
You were born in 1963. I was born in 1970. You were a Girl Guide; I was a Canada Cord Guide and continued into Rangers. You were educated at St Francis Xavier U, for which I have respect, a major in Pol-Sci. I was educated at the U of Sask, a Bachelor of Commerce.
It is beyond my comprehension how anyone who has lived through the collapse of the East Coast cod fishery could preside over the collapse of the West Coast herring fishery.
In utter amazement,
