June 1 is the first court date in the trespass suit that Marine Harvest filed against me and “John and Jane Doe” for boarding their salmon farm, at Midsummer Island, anchored in Musgamagw Dzawada’enuxw territory. Marine Harvest will be attempting to separate me from the First Nations. I am of no consequence in this case, mere cannon fodder, this is a contest between First Nations and the salmon farming industry. Proceedings are open to the public Vancouver Court House 800 Smithe St., No time has been assigned and so the case will be heard at some point during the day.

On August 23, 2016, approximately 60 First Nations from the waters of northeastern Vancouver Island, boarded a salmon farm in to perform a symbolic cleansing ceremony to protect Musgamagw Dzawada’enuxw waters from the salmon farming industry.
The ceremony was a peaceful, political declaration of First Nation rights and title. It was visible opposition to the harm done by salmon farms operations to First Nations. This action followed 30 years of telling the provincial and federal governments and various Norwegian companies...

So many people are contacting me, because I fell silent over the winter, and so I thought I would write a blog today, on Earth Day, when thousands of my colleagues are becoming activists for science around the world.

Today, a team of scientists from the Pacific Salmon Foundation and Fisheries and Oceans Canada, funded by Genome BC, published a scientific paper that put to rest the debate whether the salmon disease, heart and skeletal muscle inflammation, HSMI is occurring in BC farm salmon.
Could the piscine reovirus be harmful in one ocean, and harmless in another as was commonly believed? The...

On September 23, 2016 Marine Harvest sued Alexandra Morton and John and Jane Doe and All other Persons Unknown for trespass, nuisance and damages. On November 16, 2016, I joined three hereditary Dzawada'enuxw chiefs who filed a response to Marine Harvest, the biggest salmon farming corporation in the world based in Norway.
Traditional leaders Farron Soukochoff, Willie Moon and Joe Willie (seen below) deny any act...

Dear Fisheries Minister Dominic LeBlanc:
Thank you for your reply of October 5, 2016. I am replying in an open letter.
I am not sure if you are aware how inappropriate it appears when you state that the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) altered the test for ISA virus in salmon and since then the virus cannot be detected in BC.
The CFIA is a...

Early on the morning of September 26th I was scrolling through the online news and came across this headline in Norwegian - Marine Harvest plaintiff Alexandra Morton. It was a bit of a surprise to read in the Norwegian news that Marine Harvest is suing me, without any contact from Marine Harvest. I realized that this Norwegian headline reported on me by name, not...

The nations of the Dzawada'enuxw are uniting and traveling down the coast of Vancouver Island locking arms with other nations in their quest to remove salmon farms from their traditional waters, sometimes called the Broughton Archipelago.

I brought the boat to the Musgamagw Dzawada'enuxw, in Kingcome Inlet, as they have fought this industry for nearly 30 years! They have said "no" from the beginning and yet 1/3 of the BC salmon farming industry is using their...
