I have been struck with the gravity of our country’s environmental and ecological concerns which I came across in a number of movies where I starred in. The Muro Ami film which graphically portrayed the exploitation of young kids by big fishing operators and the unconscionable depletion of our marine resources due to illegal and destructive fishing methods and systems brought home to me a deep concern for our environment and our natural resources.
As senator, I will sponsor laws which will strengthen our efforts to preserve and protect our marine resources; laws which will impose heavy penalties on those who rob future generations of their just share of our national patrimony.
If we are to make our country a tourism haven, we must restore the pristine beauty of our forests and the richness of our natural resourced both in land and in the seas.
