Don Staniford, one of the most eloquent, informed and powerful critics of the salmon farming industry, will be at Quadra’s Community Centre on Saturday, February 25th at 7:30 pm to present his views on an industry that he deems to be ecologically dangerous and environmentally unsustainable.

Fresh from combatting a lawsuit filed against him by Mainstream Canada for comments the corporation considered defamatory, Staniford will be describing this legal battle, justifying his views and enlarging on his criticism of the industry.

Staniford, a close associate of Alexandra Morton, is no stranger to environmental activism. He has been a vociferous critic of the salmon farming industry in BC for years, and before that, an anti-salmon farming activist in Europe. Shortly after his presentation on Quadra, he will be travelling to Norway to carry on his battle at the headquarters of the international industry.

The evening promises to be informative, stimulating and provocative. Staniford is considered to be an environmental hero by some, known and supported internationally for his indomitable spirit, fearless energy, insightful perspectives and unflinching commentary.

Doors open at 7:00 pm for this 7:30 pm February 25th presentation by Sierra Quadra. Admission by donation and refreshments will be available.
