Alberta trout threatened, say anglers and environmentalists

Careless recreational users, clear-cut logging are being blamed. Oh - and the Feds are being accused of ignoring their own rules when it comes to environmental issues. I, for one, would love to see the Feds sued (the timing, just before an election, would just be a bonus).

Mayhood wants a moratorium on clear-cut logging and he wants Fisheries and Oceans Canada to issue a habitat protection order.

He believes the federal government is violating its own rules when it comes to trout fisheries and Mayhood says the group is prepared to go to court over the issue.
