Day 25: The Mowats and the Camerons stand up for the high seas!
Farley Mowat is the author of 'Sea of Slaughter', a harrowing account of human destruction of the life forms in the Western Ocean since Europeans began to exploit it 600 years ago. Claire Mowat is a young-adult novelist and social chronicler. Marjorie Simmins is an award-winning essayist and journalist. Her husband, Silver Donald Cameron, is the author of 16 books, notably 'The Living Beach'. They stand collectively here in River Bourgeois, Cape Breton, making their own protest against deep-sea trawling.
