      PRESS ADVISORY

      2 April 2003

      Nuxalk Nation Hereditary Chiefs urge Safeway to boycott farmed atlantic
      salmon

      Wild salmon is a gift from the Creator Tau Tau and with this gift is the
      responsibility to care for and protect it. This gift which shaped the
      Nuxalk traditional way of life is being destroyed by Salmon Farming
      industry. Its member, Marine Harvest, is trucking farmed salmon through
      our territory; another member, Omega, is building an atlantic salmon
      hatchery in our territory. Both companies received numerously
      condemnation from the Nuxalk Nation Hereditory chiefs, but our wishes
      have continuously been ignored. It is our duty and responsibility to
      tell Safeway, which buy from the salmon farming industry, and their
      customers to stop buying farmed salmon.

      What: Demonstration at Safeway
      When: 1100hrs, 3rd April 2003 (Thursday)
      Where: Safeway, 1780 East Broadway (Broadway and Commercial)

      For more information, please contact:
      Chief Snuxyaltwa at (604) 928 2995
