Dear CEO of Grieg Seafoods – Alexandra Morton

 To all whom receive this you have my permission to circulate it.  -Alexandra Morton

July 24, 2014
Morten Vike
CEO Grieg Seafood
Bergen, Norway


Dear Morten Vike:

Over the past few weeks I have received reports of large numbers of dying salmon in your farms in the beautiful Nootka Sound, Gold River region of British Columbia, Canada. So I visited the area.

Mort bins Grieg

The stench around your farms is overwhelming and may have prompted the many reports to me. This is an area of pristine wilderness where many enjoy their summers. Your mort bins are heaped full and sinking the float low in the water and this has apparently been going on for weeks.

Via Wikipedia:  Alexandra Bryant Morton is an independent biologist who settled in Kwikwasut’inuxw Haxwa’mis First Nation in British Columbia, Canada to study wild orca (killer whales) in 1984. Morton made her home in Echo Bay – a community without roads, electricity or stores. In 1987 salmon farms moved into the region. At first Morton thought they were a good idea, but within a few years the changes to the archipelago became a concern to the people in the region. Since then Alexandra Morton has published extensively on the impact of salmon farms on whales and salmon. As the industry grew into 27 Norwegian salmon farms, her community died, the school closed, whales left, toxic algae blooms began, Atlantic salmon were found in Pacific rivers, sea lice infestations of wild salmon began and Morton dedicated her life to protecting her home from salmon farms. Morton’s work was featured on 60 Minutes.

Gold River Legion Beautification Coming Along Nicely

Update: Grace reports that they will be at the Legion around 10am this morning, Sat, July 19th to do some planting if anyone would be willing to come and help!

Grace Hoffman reports that they are making great progress with this project, and that they are just waiting for the weather to cool as well as the dirt for the planters so we can finish planting.

Legion1 Legion2 Legion3

The flower boxes are finished, and next they have two benches (donated by Tony and Darlene Reeves and refinished by Jack Wilander), soon to be placed by the flower boxes in front of the Legion.  The next step will be to get some volunteers to step forward and help with painting around the lampposts and repainting the parking lot.   Grace advises that they won’t have gravel and soil for another week or so as the owners of the pit have gone on holiday.  Once things all fall into place, physical help will definitely be needed!

Please contact Grace or Bob @ 283- 7511 OR the Legion @ 283- 2516 for more information!

We will be losing their daughter Sheila and her family (big sad face here at the Buzz) at the beginning of August, so we’d better get out there and help Grace & Bob as much as we can!

Thank You From The Gold River Fire Department


All of us at the Gold River Fire Department want to thank everyone who helped us tackle Sunday’s interface fire down at the old landfill. We have been down to the site every day since Sunday, keeping an eye on things and dousing hot spots. The fire had the potential to do a lot more damage than it did and if it wasn’t for the help from several other organizations and the Gold River community, things could have been worse. A lot worse.

So, a HUGE thank you goes out to (in no particular order):

The EMS crew: Donna Schneider, Adam Bruce, Shaun Parke, and Alyshia Boyle, Darcy Curr, Brent Terepocki, Craig Anderson, Jennifer Trueman, Gord Waterman, Jerry West, Rick Williams, Nolan Bugar, Kirsty Begon, Kyra Fiddler, Donna Gedlaman and her staff at the Gold River General Store, Brad Unger and his staff at Super Valu, Dawn Dakin and her staff at the Gold River Deli,Kevin Kay, Jack Reynolds, Doug Thompson, Dan Backer, Colin McKenzie, Matt Dickie, Brian Summerfield, Jarod Colton, Jerritt Douglas, Pete Erb, Willie Downer, and last but not least, Fred Coupal.

It is very likely there are people we have failed to mention here – we’re sorry! If you helped out but don’t see your name, please know that you are still very much appreciated. Also, apologies to those whose name we’ve spelled incorrectly. Forgive us!

And lastly, we want to take this opportunity to remind the community that the Gold River Fire Department is a volunteer organization and we are always looking for new recruits! Even if you don’t like fire, have a fear of heights, or don’t otherwise think you have what it takes to be a firefighter, we want to challenge you to apply anyway! There are so many different boots that need to be filled, from running the pumper truck to taking on the role of dispatch, we’re sure you’ll be a valuable member to the department! You can download an application form and informational brochure here (or ask any firefighter for one):
