Podium: Band leader counters column’s claims that U.S. interests fund anti-mine fight. – Business in Vancouver

RAVEN is reposting Chief Baptiste’s column from January 3, 2012 – as this issue is currently before the Canadian Senate.

By Marilyn Baptiste

In BiV’s Dec. 13 edition, Vivian Krause continues to perpetuate conspiracy theories that have no basis, make no sense, and are deeply offensive to First Nations.

A former salmon farming industry executive, Ms Krause has a number of ludicrous and insulting theories that imply that First Nations do not speak for themselves.

There is her claim that opposition to salmon farming is a US-funded plot to promote Alaskan wild salmon, when in fact it is driven by BC First Nations and non-aboriginal wild salmon fishers seeking to preserve their resources and industries and by people from all walks of life who can see the overall reality and long term impacts to wild salmon.
