Media ReleaseNovember 9, 2017 Governments Must Intervene to Stop Marine Harvest in B.C. The Council of Canadians is calling on the federal and #B.C. provincial governments to intervene and prevent Marine Harvest from removing #FirstNation observers from their Atlantic #salmonfarms In the #BroughtonArchipelago. “The people of the Musgamagw Dzawada’enuxw, Kwikwasut’inuxw Haxwa’mis, Namgis and Mamalilikala Nations have more legitimate right to be on this territory than Marine Harvest,” says Alice de Wolff, National Board member of the #CouncilofCanadians. The observers on two farms received an order to leave by 5 PM Thursday, November 9, in a letter from Marine Harvest. The Council of Canadians has called on both governments to engage in ‘nation-to-nation’ negotiations with the Musgamagw Dzawada’enuxw, Kwikwasut’inuxw Haxwa’mis, Namgis and Mamalilikala First Nations. They are united in their insistence that these Atlantic salmon farms be removed from their territories and have demanded that both levels of government not renew the required licences when they expire in June 2018. Observers from these First Nations have been at two fish farms owned by Marine Harvest since August. They are sounding the alarm about the disappearance of #wildsalmon in their territories and the health of the remaining fish. They have never given their approval to these farms. “The federal and provincial governments have an opportunity today to take action to recognize the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. They must actually negotiate in good faith with First Nations about the use of their territories, rather than allow Marine Harvest to bully with threats,” says de Wolff. -30- Contact: Harjap Grewal, B.C. and Yukon Regional Office, Council of Canadians hgrewal@canadians.org, 778 552 2099

https://www.thepetitionsite.com/takeaction/328/445/349/ I know you can’t click this link but this bread and more like it are heading up to Northern BC tomorrow. There is an occupation -an observance of a fish farm who has Atlantic Islam in in our Pacific Ocean. There is so much wrong with this. Other marine life are dying as a result. The waters are being polluted, the farm in on First Nation territory without consent- the list goes on. If you can write that link down and pop it in your browser and sign the petition that would be amazing. If you can think about donating items if your nearby to vancouver island or financial donations, if your away, that would be well used. His is very important. For all our waters. For all our futures. TAKE ACTION NOW – PETITIONhttps://www.thepetitionsite.com/takeaction/328/445/349/Our Wild Pacific Coast salmon is declining in numbers. Especially the sockeye and Chinook Salmon. Why? Fish farms are a crowded unhealthy environment for the Atlantic salmon they farm. The fish are covered in sea lice that is similar to headlice which can occur in over crowding in human populations. To combat the sea lice they are dumping pesticides into the pens. This creates a toxic environment that results in fish deformity and spreads to other fish eating mammals including people who eat farm fish. PETITIONS:Demand the BC government revoke fish farm licenses and prevent further restocking.
