    While she is talking to BCWF club delegates, I cant see that anyone would be turned away if they wanted to hear what the lady has to say. After all, they let the press and politicians into the room too.
    Does anyone know if you can buy tickets at the door to the BCWF convention? Thanks.

    Thanks for the link. From the Wired Science ref:

    "Infected fish are physically stunted, and their muscles are so weakened that they have trouble swimming or even pumping blood. The disease is often fatal, and the original outbreak has been followed by 417 others in Norway and the United Kingdom. Every year there’s more of the disease, and it’s now been seen in wild fish, suggesting that farm escapees are infecting already-dwindling wild stocks."

    ...but DFO and the industry still lie and deny. What worries me is the 'scientific solution':
    “It’s a new virus. (although first identified in 1999 on a Norwegian fish farm.) And with this information now in hand, we can make vaccines,” said Ian Lipkin, director of Columbia University’s Center for Infection and Immunity, a World Health Organization-sponsored disease detective lab
    It is unclear to me how this would help our wild stocks.

    I'd be delighted to, Lorne! 50 okay - donated to the cause?
    I'll check in with Alex to get approval for a web address - great idea btw. Thanks.

    Thanks CL. I am going to make it up there for Alex's presentation. I will be bringing my son and possibly some other fellow anglers.

    Thanks again,
    John
