Wild Salmon Educational and Fundraiser Evening:

Friday, February 16 - 7-9:30pm 
(Doors open at 6:30pm - Music starts 6:30)
Unitarian Church of Vancouver
Admission by donation - suggested $20.
This evening will show us the many serious issues around fish farms. It will also give us the chance to show our support and solidarity for the First Nations in their efforts to remove open-net salmon farms from the waters of their unceded territories.
The 2017 salmon levels were at a record low, never seen before, which puts many First Nations in great difficulty as they rely heavily on the salmon for food, livelihood and cultural practices.  
Special Guest Speakers: Dr. David Suzuki (scientist), Chief Willie Moon (Musgamagw Dzawada’enuxw), Chief Ernest Alfred ('Namgis, Mamalilika), Julia McIntyre-Smith (Musgamagw Dzawada’enuxw), and Cecilia Point (Musqueam) who will give the welcome.
The program will start in the Sanctuary at 7:00 with the speakers and then continue in Hewett Hall 8:30 – 9:30 with First Nations art sale, silent auctions, refreshments and sign-ups for action. 
Music on the theme of wild salmon and protection of our coastal waters is provided by Michael Averill, Barry Truter, and the Re:Sisters - music starts at 6:30pm.
Proceeds from the evening will go to the two First Nations: the Musgamagw Dzawada'euxw (represented by Willie Moon, Julia McIntyre-Smith) from  Kingcome Inlet and the Namgis/Mamalilikala (represented by Ernest Alfred) from Alert Bay.
Sponsored by the Vancouver Unitarians Environment Committee
