New research that finds a possible link between fish farms and the spread of antibiotic resistance doesn’t surprise marine biologist Inka Milewski.

“Anytime you have animals grown in very concentrated conditions in these intensive livestock operations, whether it’s pigs or chickens, or in this case, fish, you’re going to have the potential for disease problems,” Milewski said in an interview Sunday from her home in the Miramichi in New Brunswick.

“The solution to a lot of these problems is to put antibiotics into the feed. And so it should come as no surprise to anyone that they have found antibiotic resistance associated with fish farms.”

The study released last week by Jing Wang of Dalian University of Technology in China concluded that genes for antibiotic resistance are getting into ocean sediments through fish food.

Millions of tonnes of fishmeal are used in fish farms every year, much of it sinking uneaten to the ocean floor, a news release on the study said.

The recent release of the documentary "Frankenskies" shows the effects of geoengineering on our weather, environment and health. It adds another dimension and critical factor in climate change.  Nano-particles of aluminum, barium and strontium regularly sprayed to seed clouds are only part of the problem.  They cause respiratory illness, increase alzheimer's* likely, pollute water and land and accelerate forest fires burning intensity.

This documentary (one and a half hrs.long) traces the sources, delivery and parties profiting from this globally and can be seen online and should be mandatory viewing for both decision-makers and the public.

According to Elana Freeland, author of "Chemtrails, HAARP and the Full Spectrum Dominance of Planet Earth" Geo-engineering and environmental warfare are prohibited by the ENMOD Convention at the UN in 1994".The underlying objective appears to be 'Whoever controls the weather, controls the world'.

We are all affected by this illegal activity.  A moratorium on geo-engineering and inquiry into it is warranted now.

Rachel Notley's Pipeline Throwdown Will Never Win Over B.C. PDF Print E-mail

The Alberta premier's audacious guarantee seems intemperate at best.

"Mark my words, that pipeline will be built," vows Alberta Premier Rachel Notley.

With multiple lawsuits before the courts, including one by Raincoast Conservation Foundation, and an anti-Trans Mountain provincial government taking power in British Columbia, Notley's audacious guarantee seems intemperate at best. However, if Notley's intention was to harden opposition in B.C. to the Kinder Morgan Trans Mountain expansion, she certainly accomplished that. Notley's inflammatory "mark my words" throwdown, coupled with her hectoring and lecturing that Kinder Morgan's oil sands pipeline and supertanker mega-project is in the best interests of British Columbians, will never win hearts or minds in B.C.

What Notley clearly does not understand is that many British Columbians consider the Salish Sea and its Southern Resident killer whales as priceless and irreplaceable; a worth immeasurable in monetary terms.

Open Letter to Minister of Foreign Affairs
Chrystia Freeland

 

Picture

Dear Minister Freeland,


We are [I am] outraged by the position the Trudeau government has taken with regard to the escalating conflict in Venezuela. Once again the government has condemned Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro, expressing serious concerns over the government’s plan for a Constituent Assembly, saying it’s “contrary to Venezuela’s Constitution”.  This is not only a flagrant interference in the internal affairs of a sovereign nation but is also factually incorrect.  Article 347 and 348 of the Bolivarian Constitution clearly outlines its legitimacy and establishes the president’s right to convoke a National Constituent Assembly.
