Randall Garrison was endorsed today by fisheries biologist Alexandra Morton.
Morton and Garrison met at Goldstream Provincial Park where people gathered this morning to acknowledge the injury to the river from the Trans Canada Highway tanker truck accident and diesel spill on April 16th.
Morton told the gathering that she has travelled over 2000 miles on her Vote Salmon campaign meeting with candidates face to face to discuss their commitment to preserving wild salmon stocks. After her meeting with Garrison, Morton said: “I believe that Randall Garrison will be a champion for wild salmon in the House of Commons. He is committed to protecting wild salmon and to getting the federal government back on the job of protecting and enhancing crucial wild salmon habitat.” See the photos.
The Vote Salmon campaign will wrap up this Sunday May 1st with a walk from Sidney to Victoria ending with a rally at the Legislature. Details can be found at votesalmon.ca.
