Shark fin ban gains momentum in Metro cities
"They're going down like dominoes," Marr said of the cities signing on. "It's going pretty strong."

A campaign to stamp out the use of shark fins by Chinese restaurants is quickly gaining steam across Metro Vancouver.
Activists have already persuaded Coquitlam, Port Moody and the CIty of North Vancouver to ban the possession and use of the fins and Burnaby is expected to follow suit.
Now Vancouver Animal Defence League spokesman Anthony Marr is preparing to go after Vancouver, Richmond and Surrey – cities home to many of the Metro restaurants that serve shark fin soup.
