The Southern Strait of Georgia is an incredibly rich part of our inland sea with unique marine habitats and a huge diversity of marine life. It is also bustling with human activities

At this point in time should any one have to attempt to influence those in authority about what is right? We have limited resources, we have been and are squandering those resources. Look to the future, clean up and protect the environment and natural resources - once gone, new ones can not be purchased.

the idea sounds good as long as the animals are safe and not being exploited in any way. they must have freedom to move as if they were in the ocean where they belong. signed.

Dear Messrs Kent, Lake and Madame May;

I am writing to you today to express my feelings regarding the proposed National Marine Conservation Area.

We have reached a point in our world where setting aside areas to protect both land and marine ecosystems and habitat are the only solutions left in order to protect what is left of our precious wildlife and marine life and the habitats that they must have to survive and prosper. It is vital to the health of our planet and all who live on her that we protect this delicate balance. Each depends on the other to survive and we have reached a point of no return.

I believe in this project and I also believe it needs to be expanded upon. I think that both the proposed north and south boundaries are good, but the large rectangular area NE of Galiano and Valdes Islands should be added back into the National Marine Conservation Area.

And secondly, the National Marine Conservation Area boundary should extend up to the high tide line and include important near-shore ocean habitats (e.g. areas adjacent to provincial parks).

Parks Canada should assume management responsibility for the entire National Marine Conservation Area at once, rather than phasing it in over many years.

The National Marine Conservation Area should include a network of core “no take” areas that are fully protected.

I cannot say it strongly enough how vitally important it is to protect that which is so special and essential to the health and continued sustainability of our national Marine wildlife and humanity as well. Without healthy oceans and other wildlife habitats, we all shall suffer for it.

I sincerely thank you for the opportunity to share with you my thoughts and feelings regarding this very important project and I do hope that things will proceed with all considerations being met and an outcome that will benefit the creatures who depend on the very premise that this project represents.

Singed & posted. What a beautiful area. That entire area from there all the way up to the Aleutians is magical.

Sanctuary should be realised without hesitation.
