Day 33: Come on Canada! Stop dragging your feet!
A crab, a lobster, a piece of coral, a fish, and a gaggle of sign-holding, Canadian flag-waving people were in the streets in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia yesterday outside the Northwest Atlantic Fisheries Organization (NAFO) meeting. While motorists honked in agreement, members and volunteers of the Ecology Action Centre and CPAWS (Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society) held up signs encouraging Canada's Fisheries Minister to join other countries in supporting a moratorium on dragging.
