The Get Out Migration Rally 1

Thousands turned out in Victoria today, assembled at the Legislature Buildings, seat of power for the Canadian province of British Columbia. The government wasn’t in this sunny May Saturday afternoon, but the message delivered by those thousands is unmistakable, and it would take a very deaf regime not to hear it loud and clear.

The throng would have the largely foreign, mainly Norwegian, fish farm corporations to remove their Atlantic Salmon pens out of British Columbia waters in toto. Now!

The federal Department of Fisheries and Oceans (DFO), who is ultimately responsible for the well-being of the marine environment, has proved as ineffective dealing with the present danger posed the indigenous Salmon populations here as have their provincial government counterparts.

For whatever the reason, today’s demonstration was a mass declaration any government ignores at its peril. – ape
