David seizes sling against fish farms

In the battle for our wild salmon beset by salmon farms, Mainstream Canada is suing Don Staniford for his unfavorable ads, citing  “defamation”, and seeking “punitive damages”. It is splendid that Staniford returns, “Bring it on! Bring it on!” A David against Goliath, may justice and commonsense stand by him and our courageous Alexandra Morton seeking nothing but the truth and to act on it wisely before it is too late.

Mary Ellen Walling (BC Salmon Farmers Association) toots how responsible her industry is. Really? Responsible, when it alone is set above the laws of the Fisheries Act, and allowed to “deposit deleterious substances into the ocean”,  and to “destroy fish habitat”?  While millions of escapees doing fine at sea are now breeding in our rivers with successful offspring having full potential to out-compete our native runs for food and habitat? Responsible?

No industry and no government giving a hoot for our wild salmon would behave like our government and this corporate factory farming industry is behaving. Both are an absolute disgrace to our province and our country and must shape up or ship out!  Please folks, vote onside with our wild salmon and what counts.
