Acting Fishy: Proposed Amendments to The Fisheries Act

“Fisheries are the gift that can keep giving.

On Feb. 6, 2018, the Liberal government announced its proposed amendments to the Fisheries Act, previously altered by the Harper government.

My Last Moments in New York and Other Updates

But that's a story for another day.
