Urgent: The BC government quietly green-lighted a permit allowing Norwegian salmon farming giant Cermaq to dump 2.3 million litres of highly toxic pesticides into the Clayoquot Sound -- and the permit comes into effect tomorrow, May 1st.
34,000 SumOfUs members already pushed BC Environment Minister George Heyman to deny Cermaq's application and announce a review of all pesticide use in open-net pen salmon farms in BC. The review still hasn’t been released -- yet the government still granted this dangerous permit.
Our pressure forced the BC government to deny this permit once -- and now we have just 1 day to pile the pressure on the BC government to revoke this permit before it comes into effect. Flooding inboxes with emails is the single most effective way for them to hear from us quickly.
