Can you bang a drum? Dial-a-protester needs you!

While reviewing video from a recent farmed salmon protest in the Lower Mainland last week (published on Jan. 26), we noticed a couple curious things.

For one thing, the “science” spouted by the personalities in the clip is total nonsense, urban legends and old wives’ tales crafted to scare people. There’s no evidence for anything they say.

That’s not the curious part, that’s just normal for this crowd. The curious part was that no shoppers were listening. Maybe they don’t like people banging drums and shouting at them for some reason.

The other curious thing was the appearance of one particular individual, Audrey Siegl, who also appeared in another video published this week.

It was a busy day for Ms. Siegl! Protesting farmed salmon in the afternoon, then crashing the wrong dinner party to protest pipelines in the evening!

Guess the motto “have drum, will travel” is taken seriously by this group.

  1. They weren’t even Kinder Morgan executives either. The protestors’ message got lost in the confrontation. Instead of gaining support they likely made more enemies because they disrupted others were not with the group just wanting to have a nice, quiet dinner. Major fail on the protesters part. Donkeys.

  2. Eddie Gardner is still is unaware Costco Atlantics are imported from Chile … he is becoming the Sto-Lo Don Staniford.
