Toronto councillors set to propose ban on shark fin

A pair of Toronto city councillors will propose a city-wide ban of the possession, sale and consumption of shark fin at a press conference on Monday.

Councillors Glenn De Baeremaeker and Kristyn Wong-Tam are aiming to gather support from Toronto residents with a campaign called "Celebrate Sharks Summer Tour." The campaign intends to create a petition with 10,000 signatures.

The councillors will be joined by Rob Steward, the award-winning documentary filmmaker of "Sharkwater," and Rob Sinclair, the executive director of WildAid Canada.

Given his strong environmental record, Governor Brown is expected to sign this into law as soon as next week.
