Went down to Cinecenta at the University of Victoria to see the film, and hear from film maker, Twyla Roscovich and scientist/activist, Alexandra Morton. The audio quality of the Q/A is not great, but Twyla and Chris Genovali’s remarks before the screening are clear. The blurb below is from the film’s website: http://salmonconfidential.ca/ – ape.
Salmon Confidential is a new film on the government cover up of what is killing BC’s wild salmon. When biologist Alexandra Morton discovers BC’s wild salmon are testing positive for dangerous European salmon viruses associated with salmon farming worldwide, a chain of events is set off by government to suppress the findings. Tracking viruses, Morton moves from courtrooms, into British Columbia’s most remote rivers, Vancouver grocery stores and sushi restaurants. The film documents Morton’s journey as she attempts to overcome government and industry roadblocks thrown in her path and works to bring critical information to the public in time to save BC’s wild salmon.
The film provides surprising insight into the inner workings of government agencies, as well as rare footage of the bureaucrats tasked with managing our fish and the safety of our food supply.
