Cipyright image
Legislation has been introduced in Parliament to ban the import of shark fins in Canada. DEMA is urging all interested parties to support this legislation (Bill C-380) to stop the import of fins.

Sharks are apex predators and as such play a critical role in maintaining healthy, balanced marine ecosystems. The continuing practice of shark finning (removing the fins and discarding the remainder of the shark back into the sea) is having a devastating effect on shark species and populations around the world. By some estimates, up to 73 million sharks are killed each year for fins alone.
What can you do?
  1. Sign the petition in favor of Bill C-380 to support banning the import of shark fins into Canada.
  2. Print, sign and return the Petition to Parliament.
  3. Call or write a letter to your  Member of Parliament.
  4. Request a meeting with your Member of Parliament.
  5. Host a Film screening at your store or home.
For more information, contact the Bill’s sponsor, Fin Donnelly directly and offer your support.
