Two of Canada’s most progressive scientific minds, Dr. David Suzuki & Alexandra Morton, are teaming up on April 18th to present & discuss the documentary Salmon Confidential.  Following the hour-long film, these scientists will engage the audience on the multitude of issues around the diseases the salmon farming industry may be spreading to our wild salmon, our food supply and what this issue is costing our economy.  Suzuki & Morton will also explore the opportunity B.C. has to bring back our wild salmon economy this election.  For more info visit SalmonConfidential.ca

Salmon Confidential is a new 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.

In an endorsement of Salmon Confidential, David Suzuki commented, “For years, Alexandra Morton has soldiered on providing evidence of and calling for action on the catastrophic state of wild salmon. Government and industries have thwarted her over and over again. This film clearly documents that governments do not put protection of wild salmon at the top of their priorities and Canadians should be outraged. I am.”
