The Broughton Archipelago is a group of islands on the northeastern flank of the Queen Charlotte Strait on the coast of British Columbia, Canada. The largest islands in the group, which includes numerous smaller islets, are Broughton Island, North Broughton Island, Eden Island, Bonwick Island and Baker Island. The islands are all located within the Mount Waddington Regional District which has little jurisdiction over them, as nearly all settlements in the area are either Indian Reserves of bands of the Musgamagw Tsawataineuk Tribal Council or fish farms under the jurisdiction of the federal Department of Fisheries and Oceans.
The archipelago is the traditional territory of the Kwicksutaineuk-ah-kwa-mish and Tsawataineuk subgroups of the Kwakwaka'wakw peoples and is the focus of controversy over commercial fish-farming by Norwegian aquaculture companies. One of the most prominent studies carried out to assess the relationship between fish farms and sea lice infestations on wild species was carried out in this archipelago in the spring of 2002.
Well friends, here we go again, a pleading letter from a Norwegian Judge about drug resistant sea lice, sea lice run wild, a new post up by Alexandra Morten talks about sea lice larvae flooding through discovery passage, this has gone too far,the facts are clear, I don`t give a rats ass about the Olympics, I care about one man(if you can call him that) single handidly killing off wild Salmon, that species killer is Gordon Campbell.
Friends, this is serious, the Norwegian fish farms around the world are in big trouble, in Chile,in South America the Salmon are sick with sea lice and Salmon anemia, in Norway the sea lice infestation has become drug restistant, even in eastern Canada the effects of drug resistant sea lice are being felt, and here in BC Alexandra Morten has rushed to Nootka Sound to investigate, she`s there because you can`t get ant information from Marine Harvest(Norwegian fish farmers)...And the totally inept DFO is too busy to investigate...
Alexandra Morten is reporting a full blown sea lice bloom, drug resistant sea lice, no legal chemicals can stop the sea lice, sea larvae are being driven by tides to eastern Vancouver island, the Fraser River Sockeye smolts will be decimated by sea lice.(read this scary story here) http://thetyee.ca/Blogs/TheHook/Environment/2010/02/16/SeaLice/
Right now First Nations people on the coast are staging a 29 hour hunger strike against Norwegian Fish farms, one hour of hunger strike for every fish farm in the Broughton Archilpelaga which is on the eastern flank of the Queen Charlotte Strait...And yes, it`s a little ways from Queen Charlotte Islands now known as Haida Gwaii, although we,many of us have always called the Queen Charlotte Islands Haida Gwaii .(read about their hunger strike here) http://thetyee.ca/Blogs/TheHook/Aboriginal-Affairs/2010/02/15/ChiefsProtest/
I have had it with Gordon Campbell,what will it take to stop him, will some radical environmentalist try and kill him,I am not in any way advocating violence but I could see that type of anger erupting over the extinction of wild Salmon, we have had wild Salmon forever in BC and one man, one creature,one HABITUAL LIAR named Gordon Campbell is hell bent on destroying all wild BC Salmon.
Are you happy David Suzuki, are you happy Tzeporah Berman, you two phony environmentalists helped elect the species killer Gordon Campbell.
There is no more discussion, Fish Farmers has given Gordon Campbell`s(party) hundreds of thousands of dollars , the money is payment, the taking of said money is carte blanc permission to destroy BCs wild Salmon.
Study after study, Fish farms in Chile have been culled to try and stop the Norwegian made disaster, these fish farms must be removed from our oceans today, no more study,no more obfuscation, Target foods has stopped buying any farmed fish, when word gets out about this latest development the other major stores will abandon buying farmed fish, friends,these fish are alien fish,they are not BC Salmon.
These fish are as alien to BC !
These fish, my soul, my blood, how can one man decide to take species from planet earth, how can one person single handidly decide to take money in exchange of extincting wild BC Salmon, how could such a person sleep at night, how can Gordon Campbell look at his grand children, what bed time stories does Gordon Campbell tell those kids, does Gordon Campbell start those bed time stories like this.
Godon Campbell`s bed time fable to his grandchildren(hypothetical)
"once upon a time a long long time ago there were 5 types of silver fish swimming in our BC oceans and spawning in our BC rivers, these silver fish I removed for all time in exchange for silver coins, for with silver coins I can buy martinis and beach front property in Hawaii, silver coins are far far better to have than silver fish, silver fish fed families of First Nations,silver fish were bothersome to the river divertors, with the silver Salmon gone granddad and his American cousins could turn all the silver coins into gold coins and granddaddy gordon loves golden coins and one day little one you will have all the gold coins and the evil silver fish eaters will have nothing."
You are a sick habitual liar Gordon Campbell, your party is sick, And Anyone who thinks the BC Liberal party only needs to remove their leader and carry on is one sick puppy, one sick puppy with a rude mouth, a foul mouthed ex journalist who is nothing but a goon, someone Grant G could stomp on mentally.
Friends, I normally don`t get this angry, sometimes it boils over, maybe that`s why I have been banned from the Tyee web site, I am not a violent person, but I have never run from a fight.
And if Gordon Campbell wants a fight, if some two-bit journalist want to fight.
Bring it on!
