Please accept this letter as adamant support for the planned removal of fish farms in the Discovery Islands ["North Island-Powell River MP to meet with fisheries minister," January 8].
They are destructive, polluting, lethal to small salmonids and are adding to the general erosion of the natural balance in the area.
To be fair, I am not against fish farms. I am against such industry in vulnerable and fishery-sensitive areas.
Put the fish farms where the migratory salmon routes are not.
Do the right thing, and stop accepting job-losses as an excuse for environmental destruction. The jobs will stay.
