To organize and facilitate effective communication between pet industry representatives ( e.g. Pet Industry Joint Advisory Council of Canada, PIJAC ), municipal and provincial government officials, and the media, I am seeking nominations for four people to represent aquarium and terrarium animal enthusiasts within each province - a primary contact and alternate for aquarium animals, and a primary contact and alternate for terrarium animals.

This is a voluntary position, but not one without its rewards. The individuals who occupy these positions will enjoy the benefit of being greatly appreciated and respected throughout the aquarium and terrarium hobby in Canada.

To nominate someone for these positions, please respond to this thread indicating the persons name, province, and position ( aquarium or terrarium representative ).

This message will be posted on as many other aquarium and terrarium forums as possible, and those individuals with the most nominations will be offered the positions.

These positions need to be filled ASAP, as the aquarium and terrarium hobby is currently under attack by the BC SPCA in the Province of British Columbia.

Thank you for your support!

P.S. CATAL is a new organization / website whose purpose is to keep Canadian aquarium and terrarium animal enthusiasts informed of current and pending legislation that effects their rights to keep the animals they care about, and to oppose legislation that is contrary to their beliefs.
