This public all party election forum on fish and fisheries will explore many questions related to Manitoba’s valuable fisheries resources, will include presentations from the different stakeholder groups, and a question and answer session among politicians representing parties participating in the provincial election. Not everyone will agree on every issue: but it is important to start the discussion to find where we share common ground. And our politicians need to be made aware of the concerns of the stakeholders and the range of policy options for managing a resource that is important to all Manitobans.
The forum will be hosted by the Richardson College for the Environment at the University of Winnipeg on Tuesday, April 5th in Eckhardt Gramatté Hall from 7:00PM – 9:00PM. The session will be moderated by Bartley Kives of the Winnipeg Free Press.
