After three long weeks of waiting for the Conservative MP James Moore (Port Moody-Westwood-Port Coquitlam), to confirm a brief meeting with our delegation (Campaigns Against the Cruelty to Animals, some teachers from an elementary school in Port Coquitlam and a city council) regarding concerns about shark conservation, we received a very brief e-mail notifying us that Mr. Moore is just too busy to receive us.
We understand that Mr. Moore is a very busy person, but this was a big disappointment for all of us, especially to the children who had already done some shark art work for Mr. Moore and were hoping that our delegation was going to deliver their art expressing their shark conservation concerns.
This is not the way to treat concerned children of your own constituency, Mr. Moore.
We all are frustrated with the way Mr. Moore deals with people's concerns, especially when it comes to protecting and conserving sharks in Canada and the urgency to ban the import trade of shark fins at a federal level.
