On May 8, 2010, I helped lead the final steps of the GET OUT Migration, a 6 - day walk down Vancouver Island to Victoria, into the capital of British Columbia to inform the Provincial Government that we want salmon farms out of the ocean to protect wild salmon.
Incredibly, 5,000-7,000 people joined us for that final day of the GET OUT migration. We felt certain that the Province of BC could hear us, but sadly that may not be the case. The salmon farming industry needs to expand in BC by 40% to remain profitable. The Harper government seems willing to allow the BC coast to be used in this way and so it is up to the Premier of BC. Will Christy Clark grant more and bigger Licences of Occupation giving the industry access to this coast?
In 2012 I launched a petition to the Premier of British Columbia to see how many people do not want the BC coast used by companies to flush tonnes of farm salmon waste daily from floating fish farms.
108,745 people signed petition!
If it won't let you sign it means you already have signed
On Wednesday, this petition is being tabled in the BC Legislature by MLA Andrew Weaver on our behlaf.
