Sept 5 - LINK ARMS FOR SALMON - Art Gallery

"Salmon returns this year have been dramatically lower than in past years. The Fraser River sockeye run is expected to see the return of only 2.27 million fish, compared with the average of 3.9 million, according to Pacific Salmon Commission." - See more at: 

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:

"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)
