Willie Mitchell on Kokish River's Last Gasp

Only you and the Department of Fisheries and Oceans (DFO) can save the Kokish River now.  The provincial government has dropped the ball, letting one of Vancouver Island's last decent east coast steelhead rivers be decimated by their approval of a Run of River power project.

NHL defenceman and Van Isle native Willie Mitchell is one of many BC residents or groups throwing their names into the ring in the hopes of having the Department of Fisheries and Oceans, the final gatekeeper for all Run of River power projects, turn down Brookfield's extremely harmful power project proposal.  Below is today's Vancouver Sun advertisement hoping to create a last minute swell of opposition.  Please contact the DFO and let your voice be heard quickly.  We're likely only days away from their decision.  I plan to email them right now to express my opposition, hopefully you will too.
