River's End Fisher Poets

In commemoration of Canada's 150th, the Cannery presents a thought-provoking speakers' series to accompany the 2017 feature exhibit "The Pull of the Net: Commercial Fishing in Canada". On Sept. 23rd, a crew of current and retired commercial fishers will share their creative writing about the industry in this celebratory and casual afternoon. Wilfred Wilson and friends were inspired by fishing the many rivers along BC’s rugged West Coast. The allure of fishing will shine through their words.
