...from the files of Alexandra Morton:

From a blustery North Pacific morning.  The Fraser sockeye have finally passed Northern Vancouver Island and are heading for their spawning grounds throughout the Fraser watershed. They will feed 60% of the BC province, they have already given towns along the coast $100,000s, returning hope and prosperity to towns abandoned by our governments.  But as Dr. Randall Peterman, chairman US/Canadian Pacific Salmon Commission states in the Vancouver Sun today,this year was miraculously positive, but one year does not make a trend.  The Fraser sockeye have demonstrated in no uncertain terms that they are capable of thriving amongst us. They are up to the challenge of living with humanity! Now it is entirely up to us if we want this to continue.  We have to know why so many returned this year after an 18 year decline in productivity.

Remarkably, we have just the mechanism already underway, the Cohen Commission.  I am in this inquiry and I cannot state strongly enough that Judge Cohen must hear from all of you.  He is making a significant effort by traveling throughout the Province before the hearings begin.  Please consider showing up at these meetings.

Come to one of these meetings and yell at someone. If you are tired of this government and its' cronies raping nature for profit, show up and say something that makes security throw you out. Don't yell at anyone who is on the side of salmon or the environment, for God sakes. But there will probably be some representatives there from industry. Show the angry hippie side. Do it. Do it.
Just sayin'...
