NDP MLA, Howard Epstein, urges Loyola to listen to scientists

Howard Epstein, the NDP Member of Legislative Assembly for Halifax, Nova Scotia stands here to point out to our Fisheries Minister that you can't protect seamounts and deep-sea corals if you don't know where they are. Scientists tell us that it can take several years to find ecologically important habitat. They stress that a moratorium is needed so that we can find the areas that need protecting BEFORE they are destroyed.

Mr. Epstein is also a lawyer and part-time law professor.
