This event happens Feb. 23 at Envy Nightclub (2300 Dewdney Ave) at 7 p.m. It’s being hosted by an organization called Fin Free Regina in association with an organization called Shark Truth that aims to raise awareness about the wholesale slaughter of sharks (around 70 million annually) for their fins which are regarded as a gourmet delicacy in soup.

Shark Truth was started by Claudia Li, and she’ll be in town to speak about the situation, and to promote awareness about a private member’s bill (Bill C-380) that was put forward by New Westminster-Coquitlam NDP MP (I kid you not) Fin Donnelly that would ban the import of shark fins across Canada.

The evening will be hosted by Jayden Pfeifer (Red Hot Riot), and will include a performance by Belle Plaine, a fashion show featuring work by local designers co-ordinated by SEED Sustainable Style, a silent auction and refreshments.
