Stephen Harper says a re-elected Conservative government would take additional steps to restore and enhance B.C.'s salmon habitat and marine environment.

Harper is in the riding of North Island-Powell River to promise an extended partnership with the Pacific Salmon Foundation and $15-million to restore and conserve British Columbia estuaries.

He says the investment will help to preserve the lower Harrison River's salmon ecosystem.
