In light of the recent extension of Salmon farm licenses in British Columbia, Cinema Politica On Demand highlights this important documentary by Twyla Roscovich. SALMON CONFIDENTIAL is about the Canadian government's cover up of what is really killing BC’s wild salmon. When biologist Alexandra Morton discovers British Columbia's wild salmon are testing positive for dangerous European salmon viruses associated with salmon farming worldwide, a chain of events is set off by government to suppress the findings.
Tracking viruses, Morton moves from courtrooms, into British Columbia’s most remote rivers, Vancouver grocery stores and sushi restaurants. The film documents Morton’s journey as she attempts to overcome government and industry roadblocks thrown in her path and works to bring critical information to the public in time to save BC’s wild salmon.
