Yesterday 60 of us got into canoes and began paddling down the Fraser River to the sockeye inquiry. National Chief Shawn Atleo honoured us by singing our departure. We sang our way down the river. Gandhi and Martin Luther King have taught us how to protect ourselves from governments who have forgotten that they work for us. We must gather powerfully and peacefully and state our demand.

At 11am we will release a new film at www.salmonaresacred.org as to why Justice Cohen must order full disease disclosure of all salmon feedlots on the sockeye migration route. If he leaves some out it will leave us wondering why specific feedlots in the middle of the sockeye migration route, like Cyrus Rocks, were omitted.

This about our food, our communities, our future. Let everyone you know that we will be landing at Vanier Park 9am October 25th. This is not the time to be behind this, if you want our towns to thrive you have to be beside us. Walk with us for 1 hour form Vanier to the sockeye inquiry. It is that easy. If it rains your presence means even more. The salmon depend on rain, it brings life.
Thank you for all your energy.
