Alexandra Morton has the Straight Goods, the bottom line, BC Liberals are bold-faced liars and Don Mcrae is a lying(To steal a line from Justin Trudeau) Piece of SHIT
I mentioned before in a previous post that there is something seriously wrong with Comox Valley MLA Don Mcrae, in my opinion he must be using heavy pharmaceutical drugs, his mannerisms, his complete lack of knowledge on anything, but what`s most disturbing of all is..
The man thinks serious issues are but a joke, there is a time and place for partisan politics and there is a time for answers, serious answers, it`s rather disturbing what a man will say when the aquaculture industry donates money towards his election.
Today`s question period, I recommend you watch the whole session, Don Mcrae rises to speaks jibberish at the end.....
Michael Sather called Don Mcrae`s answer what it was...."The worst answer ever given in question period history", and I agree..
When Michael Sather asked this minister about the Norwegian ISA SALMON ANEMIA VIRUS found in BC`s wild Salmon,
TEST RESULTS FOR DISEASE
IN WILD SALMON
M. Sather: "The infectious salmon anemia virus has been discovered in wild salmon in Rivers Inlet. This is a potentially devastating disease that hasn't been reported before in the North Pacific.
The Chilean farming industry was devastated by this same virus: $2 billion in losses, production cut by half and 26,000 people laid off.
We have a lot more to be concerned about here in British Columbia as well. We have our world-renowned sport-fishing industry, our commercial industry and our First Nations food fishery.
Now, Dr. James Winton, who leads the fish health research group at the Western Fisheries Research Center in Seattle, called this outbreak a "disease emergency." My question to the Minister of Agriculture is: does he agree with the assessment of Dr. Winton?"
To which Don Mcrae said.....
Hon. D. McRae: "Well, we've got another example of spinning media headlines and fearmongering from the opposition.
The reality is this. The lab results were sent to PEI. They were sent to PEI. They were not following protocol when, instead of actually contacting CFIA, they went directly to SFU, which in turn went to the media.
When CFIA then, in turn, said, "We'd like to do our test samples," and said, "We'd like to test the fish," well, unfortunately, I'm advised that the tested-positive results at the PEI lab were destroyed, and therefore, not available to CFIA.
Now, what I want to make sure that we have very clear in this chamber today for all members here and all members of the public is that ISA poses no risk to human health. I don't want people leaving this chamber for one second thinking that ISA is a problem to human health"
Well well well Don Mcrae, this isn`t about the health concerns of people, it`s about the survival of BC`s wild salmon, you are such a dolt Mcrae!
Michael Sather then scolded Don Mcrae for his idiotic answer.
"M. Sather: Well, in my time in this House that has got to be one of the worst answers I have ever heard. The minister is really making a mistake in going this route.
Those fish were tested by the World Organisation for Animal Health. Now, if the minister wants to quibble with the worldwide body that's responsible for fish health, go ahead — fill your boots — but you're making a big mistake.
And you're making a big mistake about not taking what's happening to our fish, our wild fish, our salmon farm fish in this province…. You're not taking it seriously, Minister, and you ought to be ashamed and apologize right now."
Don Mcrae then made this stupid comeback
"What's really important, though, is that when an allegation or a test is done, we make sure that the protocols are done to make sure that CFIA (Canadian food inspection agency) can ensure that these results were fair, accurate and basically making sure that they react accordingly.
One study needs to be backed with another."
You Don Mcrae are not worthy of being an MLA, your brain is missing, you are as useless as a sack of hammers!
How many studies will it take Don Mcrae?
My two questions to Christy Clucking Clark are......
How on earth could Don Mcrae be the minister of anything.....And is Harry Bloy Don Mcrae`s Uncle?
The potential loss of BC`s wild salmon is very serious.....If you were in front of me Don Mcrae, I would slap you silly with an Atlantic Salmon!
Watch the shocking question period here.
Updated here.....Our clown minister Don Mcrae may not take the matter serious but our Americans neighbors do,...Three count em three US senators are demanding action from both the Canadian Federal Government and the BC Provincial Government on the ISA breakout on our central coast, these senators are worried about the survival of wild salmon in both Washington state and Alaska.....Tens of thousands of jobs could be lost with a major outbreak....Here is a little cut n paste.....
The Harper government, which on Thursday described as "inconclusive" tests showing British Columbia wild sockeye salmon have been infected with a potentially devastating virus, isn't taking the matter as seriously as top politicians in the U.S., the House of Commons was told Thursday.
The New Democratic Party drew attention to a statement issued earlier in the day by three American senators who have made a bipartisan appeal to U.S. government officials to probe the possible spread of infectious salmon anemia.
The senators, describing the disease as "the Canadian salmon virus," are calling on the National Aquatic Animal Health Task Force to analyze the risk of it spreading.
"We need to act now to protect the Pacific Northwest's coastal economy and jobs," Washington state Senator Maria Cantwell said.
"There's no threat to human health, but infectious salmon anemia could pose a serious threat to Pacific Northwest wild salmon and the thousands of Washington State jobs that rely on them."
NDP fisheries critic Fin Donnelly said the Canadian government isn't taking seriously the news earlier this week sockeye tested positive for the disease.
____________________________________________________________________________________It has been described as the first time the disease has been detected on the West Coast, and Routledge said the only "plausible" source was fish farms.
Morton has alleged that the virus also likely is to be found in B.C. farmed salmon, though the government and aquaculture industry said there's no evidence of that.
"The U.S. recognizes the urgent need to protect their coastal economy and jobs, but this government is mute,"
The virus found on the two smolts has been identified as the European strain of the virus, which has been found in Atlantic wild salmon. B.C. has imported more than 30 million Atlantic salmon eggs over the past 25 years.
The same virus pummeled Chilean fish farms in 2007-08, killing millions of fish and resulting in several fish farm and processing plant closures.
The three U.S. senators are Cantwell, a Democrat, and two Alaskans, Republican Lisa Murkowski and Democrat Mark Begich.
The Alaskan senators used the news release to contrast their state's policy of promoting the wild salmon fishery against the government-supported B.C. aquaculture industry.
Begich said the B.C. virus is a threat to Alaska, "the world's premier producer of wild salmon."
Don Mcrae and the BC Liberals may think this is a game of hide and seek, hide the data, hide the real story, deny delay and deflect, I can guarantee you this, if there is ISA the Americans will find and prove it, all around the world from Chile to Scotland to Norway wild salmon runs have been devastated by diseased farmed fish.....You can`t have tens of thousands of salmon living in a bathtub without disease, the salmon get sick and die, fish farmers attempt to mitigate disease with the use of toxic chemicals and loading farmed salmon with antibiotics,it doesn`t work!
Don Mcrae,.....Perhaps you might want to try your comedy routine on those three American Senators!
