‘More Trouble On The Coast’

Government needs to make it easier for Canadian businesses to get enforceable injunctions preventing illegal harassment from protesters at a workplace, and police need to be instructed to crack down – not back down – during these incidents. Businesses have a right to conduct their legal, licensed affairs without interference. This kind of nonsense is happening far too often and is yet another result of Race Based Law:

“Setting out from Port Hardy on Vancouver Island, members of at least six B.C. ‘First Nations’ {‘Siberian settler communities’} took to the sea Monday to deliver an ‘eviction notice’ to a fish farm operated by ‘Marine Harvest’, one of Canada’s largest producers of farmed Atlantic salmon.

“This is our ‘right’ and this is ‘our {ancestors’ former} territory’ and we need to protect it,”
organizer and Kwakiutl ‘First Nation’ {a ‘nation’ of 805 people} elder James Wadhams told ‘CTV News’…

“Last year, there were demonstrations across the province and several ‘First Nations’ groups {illegally} occupied a handful of aquaculture sites…

“For its part, ‘Marine Harvest’, which is headquartered in Bergen, Norway, says that it has agreements and positive relations with more than a dozen ‘First Nations’. And while there’s no sign that the seafood giant will move out of B.C. anytime soon, some of its leases expire in June.”

From last month (Dec.2017):
“‘First Nations’ {Race} activists who lost a legal battle to continue protesting at a fish farm off British Columbia’s coast say the decision hasn’t dissuaded them from bringing an end to aquaculture on their {ancestors’ former} territory.

“A B.C. Supreme Court judge has granted an injunction to ‘Marine Harvest Canada’s Midsummer Island farm, which is located amid a series of islands in the Broughton Archipelago, about 50 kilometres east of Port Hardy on Vancouver Island…

“Protesters began occupying the farm in September, although Molina Dawson, a protester with the Musgamagw Dzawada’enuxw ‘Nation’ {They’re not a ‘Nation’ but in fact, a ‘Tribal Council’}, said they scaled back their activity while the legal proceedings were underway.

“Justice Peter Voith said in the decision that the protesters’ presence “gives rise to real safety issues and he agrees that Marine Harvest will suffer irreparable harm if the occupation of the farm continues.

“‘Marine Harvest’ issued a statement following the decision, saying the company is pleased that the court recognized it has a

“legal right to operate without harm, and that its staff may work free of harassment, threats, and intimidation”.

“Legal counsel for the protesters, some of whom are ‘indigenous’, say the defendants have an ‘Aboriginal {Racial} right’ to govern the land and waters where the farm is located
{These are Canadian offshore waters and these companies are legally licensed!}

“But Voith said in his ruling that the activists sent an eviction notice to the company, among other actions, which extend beyond simply monitoring the farm, and that other unnamed protesters failed to provide any legal justification for their behaviour.

“Karissa Glendale with the Namgis ‘First Nation’ {a ‘nation’ of 1,875 people} said she anticipated the outcome, but is frustrated by the judge’s decision.

“This government and all the laws, they’ve never recognized our government that we’ve had and that has worked for us. They don’t recognize our ways,”
she said.
“For me personally, I won’t be wasting my time and money with this court system.”
{You are Canadian and subject to Canadian law – whether you like it or not…}

“Glendale said that doesn’t mean she’s going to stop fighting fish farms on her {ancestors’ former} ‘traditional territory’.

“She said she will continue monitoring activities at the farms operated by ‘Marine Harvest’ and ‘Cermaq’, an aquaculture company that has also been granted a court injunction to have protesters removed.

“Marine Harvest said it reached out to the protesters, but a meeting was declined.

“Glendale and Dawson said they were never contacted by the company.

“Every time we go there, no one talks to us other than telling us we’re trespassing,”
Glendale said, adding she won’t negotiate her stance.

{Some} ‘First Nations’ have not provided their consent to the operation of fish farms, Glendale said, and she remains certain that they’ll one day be rid of them.”

Issuing ‘Eviction’ notices to Cermaq (Aug. 2016)

From 2016:
“On Thursday and Friday a small flotilla of boats from Kingcome Village, Gilford Village and Alert Bay, with the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society’s research vessel “Martin Sheen” in the background, handed ‘eviction notices’ to four ‘Cermaq Canada’ salmon farms. Hereditary chiefs say notices will be issued to all 27 farms in ‘their {ancestors’ former} territory’.

“With chiefs in traditional robes, drumming and singing, the group ignored efforts by Cermaq employees to prevent them from {illegally} landing, handed over the notice and then held a cleansing ceremony and wild salmon barbecue at one of the farms.

{Some of} Our people have spoken. We want salmon farms out of our territory,”
said chief councillor Willie Moon, the first to pull into the farm off northern Vancouver Island.

“‘Musgamagw Dzawada’enuxw’ consists of five ‘nations’, with 576 members, whose {ancestors’ former} territory encompasses the Broughton Archipelago east of Alert Bay. Cermaq and ‘Marine Harvest’ have farms in the area.

“I just told them they were ‘trespassing’ and we had every right to be there. This land belongs to our people,”
Moon said in an interview…

“Musgamagw Dzawada’enux leaders, who say they have the support of many other coastal bands, are demanding that no more farm fish be transferred into ‘their {ancestors’ former} territory’, all farm salmon should be removed within three months, that ‘First Nations’ have access to the fish so they can assess what diseases exist, and the right to have an observer present during harvest.

“Two previous attempts to evict the farms have failed and, this time, the ‘First Nation’ is sending a letter to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau asking him to live up to his promise to honour the rights of ‘First Nations’ as a “sacred obligation”.

“The letter reads:

“We, the Musgamagw Dzawada’enuxw view the destruction of wild fish by the fish farming industry as part of the long history of genocide forced on our people by the governments of Canada. Salmon are essential to our well-being and the well-being of our world.”

“People are now ready to fight for their traditional way of life, Willie said.

“One of our youth said ‘are we prepared to die for this?’ I think we are now,”
she said.
“The fight is on.… This is just the beginning.”

(Aug. 2016)

“After the first eviction notice was issued on Thursday, the leaders received a letter from Cermaq offering to meet them.

“But all they want to talk about are their operations and we are just talking about getting them out. That’s the bottom line, so I don’t think there’s much point,”
Willie said.

“Jeremy Dunn, ‘B.C. Salmon Farmers Association’ executive director, said salmon farms in the area have a two-decade history of positive working relationships with ‘First Nations’ and farmers have 20 social and economic agreements with B.C. Bands.

“Those agreements cover 78% of the salmon raised in B.C., he said.

“Thirty years ago, there were no ‘First Nations’ agreements {and no ‘First Nations’, either…} and salmon farmers were one of the first to put together agreements to respect their territories and to share in the benefits of the activity,”
Dunn said.

“Cermaq is open to meeting with the ‘First Nation’ to discuss the issue, but having the group landing on the farms has been disconcerting for staff, Dunn said.

“Imagine if 30 people came to your workplace when there are four or five of you in the middle of the ocean. It is challenging,”
he said.

“The eviction notices appear to be part of a campaign being orchestrated by Sea Shepherd, Dunn said… Cermaq also suspects Sea Shepherd is behind the eviction notices.

“Over the past few weeks, our employees have been harassed by the Sea Shepherd Society and other activists,”

says a statement on the Cermaq website…”
