    Page 2 of today's Times Colonist makes mention of this open house Roy. No mention of SVIAC involvement in the story. The TC got a statement from Dan Kukat of Springtide Whale watching and Eco tours though. I guess any press is good press but the tone and tenor of the article implies (to my mind anyway) that the whale watching industry is leading this initiative.

    Thanks again to Wolf who spearheaded this open house! Great to see concerned and motivated citizens trying to improve survival for the endangered orcas and Chinook populations!

    Well I for one say congratulations to everyone who pitched in here. These net pen projects are the future. Not hatcheries. The pens are cheaper and very effective at raising big healthy salmon right in the ocean
