Government misguided on fisheries cuts

I am very disappointed and upset with our present federal and provincial government officials for the numerous cuts they have been making.

Re: “Fisheries office closure slammed”

I am very disappointed and upset with our present federal and provincial government officials for the numerous cuts they have been making to Fish and Wildlife Compensation and Fisheries and Oceans jobs in the province of British Columbia, especially in the Kootenays. What can they possibly be thinking?

It is obvious that the priorities of those in power, who were elected to look after the beautiful land we live in, are misguided. Can they not see how important it is to protect and safeguard the creatures and habitats of our rivers and lakes?

Who will be responsible enough to make sure we do not lose these precious environmental gifts forever? Is this the legacy we want to leave to our children and grandchildren?

The conscientious people in Fish and Wildlife Compensation and Fisheries and Oceans have been guardians of our precious wildlife area.

So, I am asking these politicians to have second thoughts and seriously reconsider the job cuts to these necessary protectors of our environment.
