Anastasia Lintner on Recommendations to Canada’s Fisheries Act

Anastasia Lintner was hired by the Forum for Leadership on Water on behalf of 50 water activist organizations to draft recommended amendments to Canada’s Fisheries Act as part of the Department of Ocean and Fisheries consultation process. Lawrence and Anastasia discuss the importance of using protection zones prudently, the need to include both native and local voices and knowledge at decision making tables, why ministerial discretion needs to be transparent, and the importance of putting back safeguards that were removed from the Fisheries Act in 2012.
