On Oct 1 at the World Community Film Festival in Mission, BC, three prominent BC leaders - salmon biologist Alexandra Morton, acclaimed author and Greenpeace International co-founder Rex Weyler, and Chief Marilyn Baptiste of the Xeni Gwet'in First Nation - shared the stage to declare their mutual support for the important issues they are each championing. Baptiste is leading her people's tough stand against a proposed gold and copper mine that would destroy sacred Fish Lake their traditional Tsil'quotin territory west of Williams Lake; Weyler is working to wake people up to a massive planned increase of supertankers from Vancouver carrying Tar Sands crude oil to Asia and the US; while Morton has been battling fish farms on the coast for decades and is now touring the province to unite First Nations and citizens in the protection of wild salmon from fish farms and various other environmental impacts. In this historic 6 min speech, the three leaders vow to support each others' efforts and work together to protect BC's environment and democracy.
