Dr. Rashid Sumaila, Liu Faculty Associate and Professor at UBC Fisheries Centre, is one of 19 Canadian ocean scientists who are urging the newly elected Liberal government to implement four recommendations to repair the damage that the outgoing Conservative government has done to Canada's ocean science. Dr. Sumaila and other ocean scientists published a paper entitled Canada at a crossroad: The imperative for realigning ocean policy with ocean science in the January 2016 issue of Marine Policy. The paper urges the new Liberal government to re-align Canada's ocean policy with ocean science.
