William Shatner Hopes To Help Wild Salmon Live Long And Prosper

William Shatner has teamed up with the NDP, Canada’s New Democratic Party, to save British Columbia’s wild salmon.

Fin Donnelly, NDP Member of Parliament for New Westminster-Coquitlam, recently introduced a bill that would require the salmon-farming industry to move out of coastal waters and into closed containment on dry land which would prevent the spread of sea lice—an effort that would protect wild salmon from contamination. Currently fish farms off the coast of British Columbia use open pens in the coastal waters. This type of fish farming allows pathogens to spread to salmon living in the wild.

In a news conference on Thursday the actor, best known for his role as Captain James T. Kirk, plead his case to the public.

“It is all our duty, all concerned people of the world let alone concerned citizens of Canada, to harbor our resources and to make them whole and to keep them from being desecrated,” explained the 79 year old. “The fauna and the flora of the British Columbia river shores and rivers are nurtured by the salmon. Without the salmon, they die.”

Back in April, a Facebook page was started which called for Shatner to become Canada’s next leader. After learning of the campaign, the Priceline Negotiator tweeted, “I’m being drafted by various groups to run for Governor General. Would they accept me if I campaign for salmons’ rights?”
