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.
