Really people! How is that even considered a good idea? Scene from Tommy Tompson Park in Toronto.
As a fly fisherman and a Great Outdoor lover, the Enbridge pipeline project crossing pristine parts of the Canadian Rockies is an abomination and shameful project endorse by the Federal “Harper” government! Click on the photo to visit the website of Tar Sands Solutions Network, an organization promoting greener energy solution and the end of the Enbridge pipeline.
Beautiful documentary about the Skeena Watershed and the people’s that are fighting against a relentless Canadian Conservative government for the conservation of one or THE most important wild steelhead spawning land.
The Enbridge pipeline project endorse by the fed is an abomination and it’s about time they unplugged their ears and start listening what people have to say!
For all of those that are from somewhere else than Canada, get this! The federal government, now under the power of the Conservative party, have changed the fisheries act to make sure research on environmental impact on watersheds is no longer mandatory and keep bailing Canadian scientists that do not agree with their politics! This is what’s happening in Canada…
The uses of roe is illegal where I grew up in Québec, so as a result I’m not use to see such things on the river banks. What’s your thought about roe fishing?
This eye opener video of the decline of the kings salmon on the Snake and Colombia river systems show how much dams are destructive for the migrating fish specie.
But this is not just a problem out West! River dams are built on many big and smaller rivers around the world!
Damn you dams!
Because behind every fishermen, there’s a natural treasure to protect! Mining industry destruction happen everywhere and we need to step up against these giant money-maker!
Great wake up call video to watch!
These people work super hard for the conservation of watershed. Building habitat by disposing logs in the path of streams creating structure for a better wild life diversity.
Conservation is the key for successful fishing and all fishermen that we are should be conservationist first and then fisherman second.
Video like this give me hope!
Have a great weekend
Last week, the Parti Québécois took an important decision for the sake of our rivers! Hydro Québec has abandoned the majority of their small hydro electric dam projects. The principal reason is not really the protection of the ecosystem but more to save their wallet you would say? It’s true, even Hydro Québec said it. But, many of these small dams would have been built on rivers that hold a respectable amound of brook trout, if not atlantic salmon.
The city of Shannon had a project to build one on the Jacques-Cartier river. After all the effort for reintroducing an atlantic salmon population in this beautiful river, that would have been the end of it!
The Jacques-Cartier river use to be a prolific Salmo Salar river until (they) built a dam at it’s mouth in Donacona. Now, the CBJC have to stocked the J.-C. river at different places and even drive a tanked truck with the adult salmon that arrive in the Donacona fish ladder to the Parc de la Jacques-Cartier in the Laurentides.
I firmly beleive that the only way to have a healthy atlantic salmon run in the Jacques-Cartier is by the demolition of its actual dam. Maybe they should take example of the Penobscot river in Maine. Anyway, the decision taken by the Québec provincial government is at least a step forward in the right direction.
Because conservation is the key.
