Refuse to expand the salmon farming industry in BC

The Prime Minister of Canada, Stephen Harper, has given the Norwegian salmon farming industry the green light to expand in British Columbia marine waters.  Days later one of these companies was listed on the New York Stock Exchange announcing big plans to expand.  This industry never shovels its manure - waste, viruses, drugs flow directly into the wild salmon migration routes of BC.  This is a dirty industry that does not belong in our increasingly polluted oceans.

Each one of these salmon farms is given a federal licence to use Atlantic salmon infected with viruses.  This contravenes the Fisheries Act, and I am in court with Ecojustice to stop this dirty practice.

There are two things you can do to stop this industry from harming the oceans - do not buy it and make sure the Province of BC does NOT agree to rent the seafloor to each salmon farm.

Wild salmon belong in our future.

Thank you for signing this petition to the Premier of British Columbia.

Dear Premier Christy Clark:

Please do not issue Licences of Occupation to the salmon farms trying to expand in British Columbia. Wild salmon are much too important to the world to risk for a dirty industry that refuses to contain its waste and pollutes our oceans.

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      I'm a fisherman and I have seen first-hand the destruction of fish farms. I love to eat wild seafood and can't stand seeing these fish farms destroying the environment.
