Biologist and notorious anti-salmon farm activist Alexandra Morton has found herself in legal trouble: Marine Harvest Canada has launched a lawsuit against Morton for her illegal trespassing on Marine Harvest facilities back in August.
I’m glad to see Marine Harvest Canada push back with legal action. Far too often, our resource industries allow activists and protesters to participate in illegal trespassing, harassment and activism on their property without pushback or ramifications.
Here’s what Morton said in response to the lawsuit:
"I saw so many unhealthy farmed salmon this summer that I thought it was very important that someone go on the farm and document what exactly is going on in the pens.”
Well, that’s exactly what I did back in July, with the permission of Marine Harvest Canada.
I saw hundreds of healthy Atlantic salmon, hardworking Canadians, and a concern and care for the animals.
And despite Ms Morton’s claims that these salmon farms are hiding things from the public, Marine Harvest Canada is inviting members of the public to tour one of their facilities.
