For far too long, polarization has described the relationship between environmentalists and fishermen. When you see a story on the news, read an article in the paper, ask yourself if the story reflects what is happening in BC. Luckily for us, collaboration describes the relationship between reps from the Canadian Groundfish Research and Conservation Society , The Living Oceans Society and The David Suzuki Foundation. Since March 28, 2012, "the two groups have developed innovative measures to conserve corals, sponges and deep sea habitats." Bruce Turris of the CGRCS states; "It is important to address these habitat conservation issues because we recognize that our industry's future is reliant on a healthy ecosystem".

My commitment to articles and information is to provide a balanced and informed perspective on issues. Life is not always black and white and at times requires us to do some more challenging thinking in how we live in the world. And yes, at other times life requires us to stomp and yell because we are all citizens of this earth. As in relationships, the greater the disconnect from what is around us, the greater the conflict/problems. Man cannot act apart from nature's systems without facing consequences.
