It seems Alexandra Morton, embarrassed by a particularly stupid comment she made back in February, has deleted the post from her blog and is now pretending she never said it.
Morton is technically correct. The words “in quotes” were not hers. What she actually said was:
… While the governments of British Columbia and Canada turn a blind-eye, I believe the Norwegian salmon feedlots operating in BC are perpetrating one of the greatest threats known to the living world. Turning feedlot viruses from the Atlantic Ocean loose into the Pacific is damage that might not ever be repaired.
She may try and deny she ever said this, but even though she has deleted the original post from her blog, (which was found at the following URL: http://alexandramorton.typepad.com/alexandra_morton/2013/02/voice-to-salmon.html ), the link still shows up in a Google search (see the eighth result).
This is what it looks like in the Google search results:
Why did she delete the blog post?
UPDATE: 4:06 p.m. 10/04/2013
A sharp-eyed reader found that Morton’s original blog post was reposted by the Gorilla Radio blog, and is still available online in its entirety. Read it for yourself. We have also now archived a PDF copy for posterity.
Regularly, people like to come here and trash talk us for maintaining an anonymous blog. They ignore all the facts we present here — which are complete with links to back up everything we say — and fixate on anonymity. We can’t believe you, they say, unless we get a name.
Anyway, there is a very good reason why we maintain this blog anonymously.
Simply put, it’s because the biggest loudmouths hysterically attacking salmon farms in B.C. are wack jobs.
We don’t need these creeps stalking us and our families, and putting us and our children in danger. Consider the words of Leanne Hodges, one of the wackiest wack jobs of them all in the anti-salmon farming camp.
Yes Leanne, blowing up a farm and killing all aboard with a rocket launcher would really show us the “Power of Love!”
This shows us these people are not interested in any constructive discussion to make things better. They are fueled by hate and irrational fear.
We’re not interested in giving these wack jobs any information which could jeopardize our safety, or the safety of our children.
