The marine ecosystem off the coast of British Columbia is collapsing. Alexandra Morton, a whale biologist who lives in the Broughton Archipelago, began to document the decline of pink and chum salmon in the late 1990s. Prior to this decline, there was a massive expansion of open net pen fish farming on the west coast of Canada. The Canadian Government maintained that the two events are not linked. Global warming, poaching, pollution, and overfishing all took turns in the blame game. In the spring of 2010, director Scott Renyard began following the wild salmon story from Alexandra’s protest walk from her home on the northern tip of Vancouver Island to the Provincial Capital, Victoria. Thousands of British Columbians joined her, all demanding answers.
