3,000 Signatures for Vancouver Shark Fin Ban – What's next?
Mar 12, 2012 — Shark Truth is continuing to work 2x as hard on Fin Free campaigns across Canada.
First, we're focusing on engaging with the business community to show that we can give them good PR and loyal business if they take leadership to protect sharks. For example, huge hotel chains in Asia like the Shangri-La recently went Fin Free – and they've stated that all they've been getting is positive support.
This is the kind of approach we need to take here in Canada. If we give businesses a chance to take shark fin off the menu before they're forced to, they will be much more willing to accept a legislation change. Ultimately, this will be a win for the community and a win for sharks.
Second, we’re continuing to collect signatures to reach our goal of 10,000 so that when we're ready to deliver them to parliament (likely later this year), they'll be ready to go. So please, help us achieve this goal!
Keep your eyes peeled for some exciting announcements to come in the next few months!
