The demonstrators, initially about 50 people in First Nations dress, docked at Victoria’s Coast Hotel, disembarked and then marched with drums, songs and signs saying thing like “No More Fish Farms.” At the steps of the legislature, supporters and onlookers gathered to hear their message.
“The salmon are our sustenance,” said Willie Moon, chief councillor of the Kingcome community. “Without that salmon, we will no longer exist.”
A letter protesting salmon farms in their territorial ocean waters was delivered to the legislature. - See more at: http://www.timescolonist.com/news/local/fish-farm-protest-draws-hundreds-to-legislature-1.2336760#sthash.xbhnDyma.N8tz4H8u.dpuf
First Nations deliver anti-salmon farm message in Victoria
"The wild salmon connect all of us, they migrate through all of our territories. We depend on it. So let's link arms and come together. I also ask British Columbians, I know a lot of you don't agree with fish farming - link arms with us!" Chief Ol’ Siwid (Mike Willie)
