East Coast Canada News from Alexandra Morton

Hello
I am traveling through beautiful Nova Scotia meeting the people on the front lines here trying to protect their communities and home waters from the salmon feedlot industry. Hard to believe the government is would even consider letting this happen given the extremely poor conditions for siting the feedlots in these shallow bays, ringed by thriving little communities.
I will be posting daily updates on my blog. http://alexandramorton.typepad.com/alexandra_morton/2012/10/nova-scotia-day-1-.html
I would also like to drawn your attention to the news story that the CFIA – who are the ones tasked with looking for the ISA virus in BC – are now under investigation by the US Agriculture Department http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/calgary/story/2012/10/12/calgary-us-audit-cfia.html
More on this later….
Alex
