Yeah you nailed it
Your measly $2000 economic influx is gonna keep smithers running for the 11 other months of the year
The ministry in region 6 is very 'pro guide outfitter' ....it's got nothing to do with your gas money.
The nets must go? Do you want salmon farms then? Must be what you're asking for? There's a demand to be met for salmon as food.....I thought everyone wanted to eat wild salmon? That means nets. So you must want aquaculture? I'm confused. Are you against the FN nets too? Uh oh...
'Self interested people' ... yeah ... people who believe in resident priority
and not selling off our resources to the highest bidder.
"Self-interested people" = GUIDES
Anyone can see what this QWS degraded into or rather arose from.
Had very little to do in the beginning or the end about the Fishery
And sure as heck, as we see, had very little to do with Resident Priority
These Governing types do not have a special care for Locals
My gas $$?...never said anything about me or that or aliens or any such.
I am of NO consequence in these things.
The BC Government ignored you folks like most Governments do.
You have all the Power and when you figure that out you can make real changes that benefit you and the wealth of the area you live in
Until then anger is appropriate.
I tried to say that in the end ALL Politics revolves around economic issues.
And rest assured that 14% Hotel Tax instituted to pay for the Olympics Boondoggle .....well think about it a bit maybe.
Yup get rid of them before it is too late.
Once the fish are reduced you will have the Rivers all to yourself---with very few fish---great fun, all alone with no fish.
The USA is full of beautiful rivers with NO Steelhead!
Farms are the result of the loss of stocks, too may damn humans and some fools idea on how to make $$$.
Most people do not even realize that the Salmon they buy in the stores are NOT wild (and most cannot afford $30 per pound for Wild, anyway); they have no idea what a Fish Farm is.
Those do not impact the stocks.
All I said is that this was a waste and there are real things that can be done OUTSIDE of a Goverment that is clueless and really does not want to "do" anything different.
I am quite certain not much will change.
