Phasers Set to Kill
Captain Kirk is yet on another mission, this time to help save Canada's Wild Salmon. William Shatner, aka Captain James Tiberius Kirk from the original Star Trek, a Montreal born Canadian has spoken out is support of the New Democrat Fisheries and Oceans Critic Fin Donnelly’s efforts to save British Columbia’s wild salmon from open-net fish farming and the sea lice that are threatening their survival.
“West Coast wild salmon are part of the Canadian fabric, but they are in serious trouble,” Shatner said in a press conference today. "They face many threats, including sea lice from fish farms. The federal government can't continue to ignore the plight of wild salmon. We must do everything possible to ensure these magnificent creatures are protected, and Fin Donnelly’s proposed legislation helps do that.”
