More than 100 community groups and organizations appeared in Halifax, Nova Scotia on Monday to protest the government’s lack of public consultation prior to the release of a strategy that would see more open-net pen salmon farms erected across the province.
Documentary film maker Tom Sherman was there and shot these vignettes of some of the presenters:
