Feds silence scientist over West Coast salmon Study
According to an article published in the Vancouver Sun the Privy Council Office in Ottawa has stopped Kristi Miller (a leading fisheries scientist based out of the Pacific Biological Station on Vancouver Island) from talking about recent research into a mysterious virus affecting sockeye salmon before they
reach their spawning grounds.
Miller’s finding were published in Science this January, but despite the journal sending out an advisory to 7,400 journalists, the Privy Council Office refused to let Miller speak with numerous major news outlets interested in covering the story. The Privy Council office then cancelled a DFO release about the same article saying that the “saying the release “was not very good, focused on salmon dying and not on the new science aspect,””.
