Alan James [Member] http://www.scec.ca/blog/index.php/what-if#c519 2012-05-07T00:51:12Z 2012-05-07T00:51:12Z
The current law prohibits Canadians from engaging in any activity "that results in the harmful alteration, disruption or destruction of fish habitat." The proposed new wording is far more narrow and focuses on economic fisheries, banning "serious harm to fish that are part of a commercial, recreational or aboriginal fishery, or to fish that support such a fishery."

The government defines "serious harm" as "the death of fish or any permanent alteration to, or destruction of, fish habitat."

How will anyone determine whether the destruction of fish habitat is "permanent"?

Or did he actually do this?]]>
