Get out Migration
Alexandra Morton's website which covers the " Get out Migration" which was a 500km march down Vancouver Island in the spring of 2010. Starting from Sointula and ending with a huge rally in Victoria, the Migration raised awareness about the impacts of salmon feedlots on the wild salmon of BC. It was also an opportunity for communities to express their passion for wild salmon and their protection.
Since then Alexandra and her supporters have toured the Fraser River watershed, including Prince George, Stellaten, Nadleh Whuten, Nakazdli, Tlazt'en and Takla Lake. Please see the website for more information, photos and updates.
