Join the march
the marchAlex Morton and a group of us have decided to do a large Migration. It's called the Get Out Migration. We are walking from our homes on Malcom Island to Victoria, British Columbia (~500kms) to raise awareness to our government about the importance of wild salmon and to demand that salmon farms get off the migration routes of wild salmon, because they cause disease epidemics and pollute the nearshore habitat. We are walking from April 22 to May 9. On May 9 we'll arrive in Victoria and will walk to the Parliament building where we will be received by MP Finn Donnelly. He'll receive our petitions and celebrate wild salmon with us. It is important he sees the efforts of the walk, but also on the internet and around the world.
The whole point of this is to stand up and be counted - whether that is electronically, in written form or in person. People across Vancouver Island (and the world) are being amazing - inviting us into their homes, planning their own Migrations to join up with us, booking community halls for Salmon Celebrations...it's going to be two intense but beautiful weeks on the road and on-line.
