Orcas on May: Southern Residents Greensplain the Election

10/20/2019
The Green Party platform makes no mention of the plight of the southern residents, but does feature two lovely pictures of orcas—including one that looks like it may be the photo from the cover of my book—so bonus points for that. Their only official whale policy is about ghost gear and nasty nets. “Trawling gear has destroyed fish habitat, and trap and long lines create extreme entanglement hazards for whales, sea turtles, seabirds and other species.” They also think there’s something...

Orcas on Singh: Orcas Talk Tea About the NDP

10/19/2019
The NDP’s “New Deal for People” doesn’t mention whales at all and likely won’t until the southern residents unionize or Right Whales are renamed Left Whales. They do, however, mention salmon. Once. Possibly because they’re pink? The Jagmeet juggernaut proposes implementing the 2018 Cohen commission report to protect wild salmon—so the orcas should find that promise tasty.
