The Stalker

Most people are familiar with the feeling of being stalked. An unnerving feeling of having a person watch your daily moves, practice covert surveillance and gather information about your life without ever revealing their efforts.

Some of us are unlucky enough to have been stalked or bullied by a former friend, partner, school mate or colleague. This person lurks in the shadows, menacing the victim. Their intent is not for direct confrontation, but to undermine mental stability and create panic which results in self destruction. It is a cowardly method of attack, but very effective.

Anti-salmon farming activist Alexandra Morton has stalked salmon farmers for most of her lifetime.

Not all salmon farmers in BC are susceptible to her attacks, but some are extremely vulnerable. Young men and women, First Nation employees, workers that live in small island communities, and the employees who work and live at remote salmon farms far removed from their families. These employees are scared to leave their float house, and to be photographed from a distance by Morton’s telephoto lens, to be identified and shamed in public. They are nervous at their workplace on the open ocean, and at their homes.vlcsnap-2016-07-25-11h47m41s667

Not that Morton will ever physically or verbally attack salmon farmers. Quite the opposite. She is polite, respectful, even gracious in her interactions with staff. For the goal of a stalker is never direct confrontation, it is to watch the prey lose its nerves and stop functioning.

Morton is too familiar with the courts to put herself on the wrong side of the law, unless it is an arrest that will win her public sympathy. She’ll never be charged with a violent crime. She’s not about to get charged for sexual harassment either. However, earlier this year she took and published a photo of a female employee in a vulnerable position. She invited an online discussion of the photo containing many sexist and derogatory comments about this employee. She only posts the photo, and lets her congregation do the dirty work.

And while Morton may not physically or verbally attack her victim, her Facebook followers scramble to express their allegiance to her in very concerning ways.Alexis in school

This is Canada, 2017. We should not, and do not, tolerate individuals causing fear through bullying, harassment, intimidation or stalking.

Salmon Farm Science “touched a nerve” with Alexandra Morton

Salmon Farm Science definitely “touched a nerve” with Alexandra Morton in two recent blogs, Activist Alexandra Morton lies on national TV and Activist Alexandra Morton makes her lie even bigger

Alexandra Morton has taken to her Salmon are Sacred Facebook page and has even has posted a blog;

Who is calling me a liar? inviting her followers tojoin in the sleuthing” to uncover who is behind Salmon Farm Science.

We enjoyed reading the comment Salmon Farm Science posted on Alex’s blog and agree 100%

Hi Alex, it’s disappointing that you are wasting so much time trying to “out” the authors of our blog instead of explaining your lies, your deliberate misrepresentations of science and your dishonesty. Do you truly believe what you are saying? That is understandable. But it shows you are not interested in a real discussion, but in being right. The day you show true humility and actually admit that you’ve been wrong about things you’ve said about salmon farming is the day we will admit who we are and buy you lunch.

Meanwhile, mobilizing your cult army of clicktivists against us is amusing. Please continue.

Here are the links to the two Salmon Farm Science blogs. The comments posted on these two blogs are of interest, Salmon Farm Science and others do a great job responding to Alex’s “army of clicktivists”

Activist Alexandra Morton lies on national TV

Salmon Farm Science, May 12, 2014

CBS’ famous 60 Minutes program recently aired several segments about salmon farming, and they were actually pretty fair.

The show was a generally fair representation of salmon farming in BC. I especially liked how the segment showing the seafloor beneath a fallowed salmon farm showed the seafloor was crawling with prawns.

My only two concerns were:

1) Letting Alexandra Morton get away with a bald-faced lie when she talks about the ISA virus and says, “There’s nobody actually looking at the wild fish carefully.”

This is COMPLETELY false and it’s a shame 60 Minutes did not challenge her on this lie.

 Activist Alexandra Morton makes her lie even bigger

Salmon Farm Science, May 20, 2014

It would appear I touched a nerve with this post last week.

Annoyed by being caught in a lie, Alexandra Morton mobilized her followers to copy-paste this in the comments section:…
