  1. Please indicate if you are interested in attending the Grayling Blitz on August 17. The objective is to coordinate a group of anglers to collect data about fish population (Grayling, Athabasca Rainbows, Whitefish, etc) and habitat on the Freeman River and tributaries. We’ll supply maps and target sites as well as data collection forms. A copy of the data collection form is posted on our web site – it’s pretty straight forward and there will be minimal fish handling. The plan is to meet at a central spot near Edmonton (Tim Hortons) and break up into groups of 2-3. Instructions, maps, and data collection sheets will be distributed as well as review of safety plan. Fuel cards will be available for drivers for this event. Send an email to Grayling@nlft.org to register for this event. Some folks may choose to camp as well. Let us know in your email if you are interested in camping and we’ll help coordinate.
  2. The forum software was upgraded today. Feel free to report any issues here.

  9. Received the following email from Linda Duncan, MP for Edmonton Strathcona, asking for support for BILL C-438, an Act to enact the Canadian Environmental Bill of Rights and to make related amendments to other Acts. A copy of the petition will be available at the next NLFF meeting or you can access it directly through the links below BILL C-438 An Act to enact the Canadian Environmental Bill of Rights and to make related amendments to other Acts I'm very excited to announce that my Private Member's Bill calling for a Canadian Environmental Bill of Rights will be debated in the House of Commons on Thursday, June 6. The bill would require the federal government to take action to protect our environment and to empower Canadians to hold them accountable to deliver on that public trust duty. Please show your support for the bill by signing the online petition calling for the enactment, and help spread the word about the bill by liking and sharing from Facebook and Twitter. Full text of Bill C-438 can be found on the Parliament of Canada website. Linda Duncan MP Edmonton Strathcona
