Salmon farming critic comes to Quadra Island

Don Staniford, one of the most controversial critics of the salmon farming industry, will be at Quadra’'s Community Centre on Saturday, Feb. 25 at 7:30 p.m. to present his views on an industry that he deems to be environmentally dangerous and ecologically 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 while in B.C., and before that, an anti-salmon farming activist in Europe. Shortly after his presentation on Quadra, he will be leaving for 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 worldwide for his indomitable spirit, fearless energy, insightful perspectives and unflinching commentary.

Doors open at 7 p.m. for this 7:30 p.m. Feb. 25 event sponsored by Sierra Quadra. Admission by donation and refreshments will be available.
