WHY: To demonstrate to Prime Minister Harper, Fisheries Minister Loyola

Canadians are disappointed that our government is ignoring scientists,
fishermen, and other countries - including the United States - in its

reverse his decision and take this small step to protect the high seas
seamounts, coral reefs, and other fish habitat.
