You’re invited: Local SFAB Committee meeting Jan. 19, 7 pm

Chris Bos, Chair of the Victoria and Area Local SFAB Committee, has emailed regarding the next committee meeting.

The meeting is open to all anglers who fish the Canadian waters from Saanich Inlet through the Southern Gulf Islands and Haro Strait, off Oak Bay and Victoria and right out to Jordan River in the western Juan de Fuca Strait.  The meeting is “in camera” as DFO staff will not be present.

It would be excellent if this meeting were well attended, as I would genuinely like to hear the feedback from many of our constituents on important  fisheries issues that we face
