Again in 2012, Alexandra Morton was not awarded an Order of BC. Perhaps she is not sufficiently distinguished or perhaps she failed to offer financial support in the way others of this year’s recipients have done.
Alexandra is not entirely left out though. BC Liberals do have plans for her. Unfortunately, the plans involve a jail cell. She wrote this (and more) in the Alberni Valley Times:
“In March, Minister McRae, who is behind the legislation to outlaw disease reporting, said US and Asian legislators wanted to close their borders to B.C. farm salmon because of the ISA virus positive tests, which government and your Norwegian industry refuse to acknowledge. I have gone on to do more testing at the top labs in the world.
“If Mainstream is “not hiding anything” why did they refuse to allow the First Nations biologist to have two of your fish for testing.
“Let’s see the sequence data on this virus. Give us some proof of what virus and strain of virus is in the fish on that side hill overlooking Alberni Inlet.
“Threatening me is not going to help their image, nor stop these viruses from spreading.
“Now a second farm is IHN positive on the other side of Vancouver Island. If IHN outbreaks were natural in the B.C. marine environment, Mainstream wouldn’t be killing half a million fish.”
Please visit Alexandra Morton’s website and drop a few dollars in her fund to track viruses affecting coastal fisheries. This is work the federal government refuses to do because they don’t want to know the true results of scientific inquiry
