Fantastic to see them in Stoney Creek http://www.scec.ca/blog/index.php/steelhead-sighted-in-stoney-creek#c532 Alan James [Member] in response to: What if? Mon, 07 May 2012 00:51:12 +0000 Alan James [Member] c519@http://www.scec.ca/blog/ This post is simply to compare a possible change to the Criminal Code that is similar in intent to the gutting of the Fisheries Act. <br /> <br /> 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."<br /> <br /> The government defines "serious harm" as "the death of fish or any permanent alteration to, or destruction of, fish habitat."<br /> <br /> How will anyone determine whether the destruction of fish habitat is "permanent"?<br />

Mon, 07 May 2012 00:00:05 +0000 Christine Leston [Visitor] c518@http://www.scec.ca/blog/ I'm confused.<br /> Does the heading "What if?" mean "What if Justice Minister Rob Nicholson today announced changes . . . "?<br /> Or did he actually do this? Does the heading "What if?" mean "What if Justice Minister Rob Nicholson today announced changes . . . "?
