In Court to Stop the Spread of Disease to Wild Salmon
Alexandra Morton reports on Court proceedings against Marine Harvest, June 13, 2014

Update from Alexandra, Friday, June 13, 2014

Today is the last day in court.  My Ecojustice lawyers have done a very good job, the judge is sharp as can be, but as expected large corporations also hire effective lawyers.


Yesterday was pretty shocking as Marine Harvest attempted to rewrite the science on piscine reovirus.  I can only hope and I expect the judge well-understands the difference between an "opinion" and the weight of peer - reviewed scientific papers all in agreement that come to a very different conclusion.

The question of how I am funded has been raised, with the insinuation I have a mystery backer with deep pockets who I am hiding.  In fact, the funds for the public outreach comes from hundreds of people over the years.  There are never enough funds to meet this industry on its playing field - the world of advertising and so they continue to dominate.

The decision is expected in about 4 months, but that is only a guess; it could come sooner or much later. 
Off to the last day in this proceeding...

P.S. I initiated this legal action over a year ago, after learning that Marine Harvest had transferred juvenile Atlantic salmon infected with piscine reovirus from its Dalrymple hatchery in Sayward to its net pen facility in Shelter Bay (see blog post).  - See more at:

QUOTES

"The civilized have created the wretched, quite coldly and deliberately, and do not intend to change the status quo; are responsible for their slaughter and enslavement; rain down bombs on defenseless children whenever and wherever they decide that their "vital interests" are menaced, and think nothing of torturing a man to death: these people are not to be taken seriously when they speak of the 'sanctity' of human life, or the 'conscience' of the civilized world." - James Baldwin, Source: page 489 of COLLECTED ESSAYS (1998), from chapter one of "The Devil Finds Work" (orig. pub. 1976)

"Since world war two we've managed to create history's first truly global empire. This has been done by the corporatocracy, which are a few men and women who run our major corporations and in doing so also run the U.S. government and many other governments around the world." - John Perkins, 2005, author of the book titled 'Confessions of and Economic Hit Man' 

In the struggle of Good against Evil, it's always the people who get killed. - Eduardo Galeano  

"It's not enough to have lived. We should be determined to live for something. May I suggest that it be creating joy for others, sharing what we have for the betterment of personkind, bringing hope to the lost and love to the lonely." - Leo Buscaglia, author and university professor (1924-1998)
