Intimidation

The Sea Shepherd research vessel got a rude welcome when it arrived in Victoria, B.C., for its third year of working with Alex Morton. What had been a quick, routine customs event took a menacing turn. Its captain was questioned for six hours, then ordered to stay on board through the weekend until Canada Border Services could hold a hearing. And Alex and the Sea Shepherd were followed by boats with blacked-out windows carrying people with long lens cameras. First Nations made a historic agreement with the B.C. government that gave them the power to say no to fish farms.
