A Message from Chris Bos

Chris Bos, President of the South Vancouver Island Anglers Coalition, has reached out to the southern Vancouver Island recreational fishing community with regard to the upcoming local SFAC meeting and planned elections of chair and sub-chair positions:

The fall post-season Sport Fishing Advisory Board meetings are now taking place.  Important to you, on Tuesday November 9th at 7:00PM the Victoria and area Local SFAB Committee will be held as an online Microsoft TEAMS meeting

Providing local knowledge-based advice and advancing viable proposals to DFO to save our very important Chinook fishery from any further harm will again be key.  Beyond the many fisheries issues that need local grassroots input, there will be an election held to fill the positions of Committee Chair and Second Seat for our committee for the next two years.  Ryan Chamberland, our current committee chairman, has shared publicly his intentions of not running as chairman again this time. 

As you know, in the past I have chaired this committee for many years.  I have put my name forward to stand again for the Committee Chair position.  For 20 years I have been involved at most levels of the SFAB (local, regional and Main Board) as well as represented your interests on many of the species-specific sub-committees.  This valuable experience is important and needed, when our fisheries are under such threat as they are today.

In the event this election requires actual votes be cast next Tuesday night, I humbly ask that you vote for me to represent your interests on our local committee as Chairman.  And I would be most grateful if you could recommend me for the position of Chairman to other like-minded anglers in your circle of friends.

Thank you in advance for your consideration and support,

Sincerely yours,


The ACS endorses Chris’ candidacy for the role of committee chairman.

Please attend this important meeting to support whichever candidate you feel will best represent our collective interests with the SFAB and DFO in these most interesting times.
