-On December 4th 2013, Save our Skeena Salmon launched a grassroots ad campaign with newspaper ads, hundreds of posters and social media.
-People from around the province are putting up posters which tell the story of the wildlife, culture and nutritious food which would be lost if we allow oil tankers to ply the North Coast.
-The beautiful photographs, used in the ads were donated by the iLCP and others. See more sample posters below.
Funds from sales of our book “The Salmon Recipes” are being used to pay for the campaign. Help us spread the word and let your friends and family know about the book.
“We have a romance with the waters and the land………. We take what nature gives us, we take it home. And we provide other people with the fish.” –Henry Clifton of the Gitga’at Nation, a commercial fisherman who contributed to The Salmon Recipes book.
Over 150 million kg of wild capture seafood comes from BC every year, providing healthy, nutrient-rich sustenance to millions of families. People need to understand that the economic, health and social benefits associated with BC’s fisheries cannot co-exist with an oil export industry.
An oil spill would devastate not just salmon, but also the people who make their living from BC’s coastal waters. Pipelines and tankers would endanger 45,000 jobs in seafood and marine recreation – the backbone of local economies on the north and central coast.
We thank Ken McCormick who wrote and designed the ads, and the groups helping with this campaign:
