The wild salmon movement is at such a crucial moment that I want make sure everyone knows what they can do to make sure we fix this situation.
Two hundred and fifty people greeted us in Campbell River the heart of the Norwegian salmon farming industry. Hundreds of people honked and waved as we walked the 25 km south on the old Island highway.
However, this is not going to be enough. As a friend walking with me today said, "If you want to be represented, you will have to represent yourself."
If you want to see BC’s coast produce wild salmon again you need to show up wherever possible, so I am listing the dates of where the Get Out Migration will be, more information is at www.salmonaresacred.org
