Salmon Confidential is a film on the government cover up of what is killing BC’s wild salmon. When biologist Alexandra Morton discovers BC’s wild salmon are testing positive for dangerous European salmon viruses associated with salmon farming worldwide, a chain of events is set off by government to suppress the findings. Tracking viruses, Morton moves from courtrooms, into British Columbia’s most remote rivers, Vancouver grocery stores and sushi restaurants. The film documents Morton’s journey as she attempts to overcome government and industry roadblocks thrown in her path and works to bring critical information to the public in time to save BC’s wild salmon.
The film provides surprising insight into the inner workings of government agencies, as well as rare footage of the bureaucrats tasked with managing our fish and the safety of our food supply.
We are asking people to watch this film, then contact (letters, emails, phone, etc) MLA candidates in your riding & party leaders and tell them in order to get your vote you want them to stand up for the wild salmon economy (which includes wilderness tourism, first nations food fishing, sports fishing and commercial fishing) and remove the farms from the migration routes of wild salmon.
Politicians need to hear from us that BC needs it’s wild salmon and that it will be important to voters this upcoming election.
