Wild salmon activist Don Staniford was being deported on this day, January 27 2012. Staniford was being sued in the Supreme Court by Mainstream Canada, a division of Cermaq of Norway, for comments made on his website Global Alliance Against Industrial Aquaculture.  Staniford states that the Norwegian government has an incestuous relationship with salmon farming in Norway because Norwegian government leaders have salmon farming interests. Oil and gas exploration is Norways leading industry next to aquaculture and so therefore the Norwegian government has vested interest in Enbridge pipeline and oil and gas exploration.   Staniford mentions the work of dr. Alexandra Morton who made the correlation to salmon farms to ISA (Infectious salmon anemia) and sea lice and describes how deadly salmon farms are to wild salmon stocks, as well as the ecological pollution created by salmon farms due to chemical hormones and antibiotics.
