Hi. My Name is _____ and I am a voter in XMPRIDINGX.

I am calling to ask you to support Bill C-228 and help save wild salmon.

Will XMPNAMEX be voting in favour of Bill C-228?

[If yes]

Thank you for your commitment to wild salmon and the people who depend on them! I am proud to have XMPFNAMEX as my MP.

[If no or non committal]

Here are a few reasons why I hope XMPFNAMEX will stand up for wild salmon:

  • West Coast wild salmon are under threat from sea lice and diseases that originate from open net salmon farms.
  • Wild salmon are a national treasure we cannot afford to lose. Bill C-228 will help wild salmon by transitioning open net salmon farms to safe closed containment systems within five years. Canada can become a world leader in salmon aquaculture if we transition now.
  • Sensitive ecosystems, First Nations culture and thousands of jobs depend on a healthy salmon population. We cannot let the much smaller salmon aquaculture industry undermine the much larger wild salmon economy.

Thank you for your time.
