‘Fishing for a solution’: Canada’s federal government to set up a new industry group to address the issue

In his speech to the Fisheries and Oceans Canada board on Wednesday, Environment Minister Catherine McKenna said she was “not prepared to wait any longer” to address climate change and said she had “no choice but to set aside my partisan differences and join forces with the provinces to tackle climate change.”

“I know that it is going to be challenging, but I can’t sit back and say, ‘Let’s sit here and wait and see what happens,'” she said.

McKenna said that Canada would be creating a new Fisheries and Energy Development Agency, which will include a new minister for climate change, Fisheries and Aquaculture Minister Joe Oliver.

The agency will have a mandate to promote the federal government’s “fisheries, fisheries and the environment,” and McKenna said it will be part of the government’s plan to address Canada’s climate change challenges.

The government will also create a new National Fisheries Strategy to help guide the development of Canada’s fishing industry.

In its speech, McKenna also said that the new agency will be working to create a “better partnership between federal and provincial governments,” and will create a panel to “analyze all fisheries and environmental risks to Canada’s fish stocks, fisheries management and the sustainability of the fishery.”

“This new agency can be an important partner in developing the next generation of fisheries and aquaculture, which we will work to ensure meet the needs of Canadians and ensure the protection of our oceans,” McKenna said.

In her speech, Oliver said the Fisheries Department will focus on fisheries management, the science and technology behind fisheries, fisheries resources and the management of fisheries resources, and will also develop an action plan to support fisheries management in a “business as usual” scenario.

The Fisheries and Environment Canada agency will also focus on protecting the environment, he said, but it will also “focus on protecting our waters and wildlife, and the protection and recovery of our fisheries resources.”

In a news release, the Fisheries department said the new Fisheries agency will focus in part on improving the effectiveness of fisheries management by providing “a stronger framework for managing the management, protection and protection of fisheries assets, the provision of new resources, the implementation of policies, and establishing a national marine resource plan that will help protect the Canadian marine environment.”

McKenna said the department would also be working on the federal Fisheries Strategy, which would be designed to help Canadians better understand and manage the impacts of climate change on fisheries.

The minister said the agency will “be an active voice for climate action,” and that she would also seek input from stakeholders.

“I believe it is critical that we work together to build a sustainable future for our fisheries,” McKenna added.

“We must act now, and we must act together.”

Oliver also said the federal and Canadian government would look to work with provinces, territories and the territories on developing a “climate action plan” to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and to ensure that Canada has the resources it needs to deal with climate change.

Oliver said in the release that the federal cabinet is “ready to work” with the territories and territories to create “a framework for climate control, a plan to mitigate and mitigate the effects of climate variability, and a framework to prepare for the impacts that may come with climate uncertainty.”

In his remarks, Oliver also urged the government to “get on the right track” with climate policy and “get our priorities right.”

The minister acknowledged that the Conservatives had a hard job ahead of them in addressing climate change as well as the economy.

“What is clear is that we need to get on the path of economic growth, that we have to build on our economic performance and that we must create the conditions that allow the recovery to be sustained and sustainable,” Oliver said.

“In doing so, we will ensure that the Canadian economy continues to grow, that Canadians continue to enjoy a secure and stable retirement, and that the country continues to lead the world in environmental protection.”
