Aaron Gunn premiere: No Fishing Allowed

Independent journalist Aaron Gunn will premiere the video, “No Fishing Allowed: Trudeau’s Plan to Decimate an Entire Industry” at the Vancouver Island Conference Centre in Nanaimo, BC on Tuesday, August 22nd at 6 pm. This subject of this event and video is the BC west coast commercial fishing industry.

With three seasons of his “Politics Explained” videos behind him, this appears to be the first video that focuses on west coast fishing. The topic may be controversial, given the varied interests of first nations, recreational, and commercial fisher peoples who all today have a stake in the future of west coast fish populations; and also given the shares of the salmon and halibut fisheries being managed between Canada and the USA.
