It's Time To Fight Back British Columbia

  Working without a mandate the Government of BC is attempting to muzzle it's citizens. After giving away our railway illegally, butchering the Ferry system, emasculating BC Hydro, overriding the utilities commission by politicking with hydro prices, Raping our rivers, and forcing polluting mines through the environmental review system by rubber stamping, they now have put this bill (Bill 37-2012) before the legislature.


Protected information

16  Except as permitted under section 17 [duty to keep information confidential] or 18 [personal information], a person must refuse, despite the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act, to disclose the following:
(a) information that would identify the person responsible for an animal or an animal product or byproduct;
(b) information that would identify an animal or an animal product or byproduct that is located at or in a specific place or on or in a specific vehicle;
(c) information that would reveal that a notifiable or reportable disease is or may be present in a specific place or on or in a specific vehicle;
(d) information that would reveal that an animal or an animal product or byproduct affected by a notifiable or reportable disease is
(i) located at or in a specific place or on or in a specific vehicle, or
(ii) owned, or in the custody or control of, an identifiable person or body, or that an identifiable person or body is an operator in relation to the animal or the animal product or byproduct;
(e) information that is derived from a sample taken under this Act or that is submitted to the ministry of the minister or a laboratory identified in an order of the minister.

     Now, I allege that without a mandate any bills or laws put forth by the (not) Premier Photo op- Flip flop are not legal. I further allege that this particular Bill (now being called a gag law) under this regime is being put forth to protect the infected fish farms on our coast.

     For these farms, too much bad press has been given out both within and outside the Cohen Commission. It must be causing hell for their bottom line. I don't know anyone in my area who is purchasing these infected invasive fish.And if everyone stops buying their fish maybe they will listen to us. Now I am asking that everyone in the province refrain from buying farmed salmon as long as we don't get full disclosure on the health of their fish..

     If the salmon farmers can't tell us what is wrong with their product then don't buy it.

     If the government tries to muzzle us then I hope every person in this province writes their MLA (several times a day) no matter which party they support and demand they kill this legislation NOW.

     We got rid of the HST (and I'll have more on that in a  later post) and we can stop this Bill. If your MLA won't listen to you then try picking up the recall where you left off. Do it independently and do not involve any prominent party members. You are the voter. The boss. and there is no need to involve politicians. Politicians don't want recall to succeed. Once it's successful they know it can be done again. It's time to set these politicians straight. They aren't doing our bidding if they are forcing bills like this through.

The wife and I have agreed that we w ill not buy any farrm raised salmon. In fact, we will support the local FN and buy from them where it is legal to do so - sod the big stores.

As far as the BC gag law is concerned, it is a travesty that they would try to do such a thing. I do know that this news and other federal infringements on freedom of speech, have been sent overseas so the rest of the world can see how Herr Harper is doing with his new "fascist state" !
