Maybe there is a God, but thereâs probably no cod.
At least there wonât be unless we better manage our fish stocks, Greenpeace Canada wants Halifax commuters to know.
The environmental group purchased a billboard advertisement on Gottingen Street this week to play on the controversial "Thereâs probably no God" campaign to bring awareness to the state of Canadaâs fishery.
"People have found it amusing given the controversy surrounding the other campaign," Sarah King, Greenpeace Canadaâs oceans campaigner, said in a telephone interview from Vancouver.
The catchy campaign is meant to highlight the need to protect dwindling fish stocks like the Atlantic cod and 14 other species on Greenpeace Canadaâs "red list," such as Atlantic halibut, haddock and sea scallops. Species on the list are considered by Greenpeace to be endangered or threatened, overfished, or fished using methods Greenpeace considers destructive like bottom trawling, among other things, Ms. King said.
