This post ( http://foodmatters-petrie.blogspot.ca/2012/04/dead-fish-what-dead-fish.html ) related to the fish kill in Western PEI a year ago, July 2011. On July the 10th, 2012 Environment Canada did lay charges under the Fisheries Act against Mount Royal farmer Warren Ellis. The charge, under section 40(2) of the Fisheries Act, alleges that sometime between July 21 and 23, 2011, near Mount Royal, Ellis did: “deposit or permit the deposit of a deleterious substance in waters frequented by fish or in any place under any conditions where the deleterious substance may enter such water, to wit, the Trout River Watershed, in violation of section 36.(3) of the Fisheries Act.”
Ellis is scheduled to appear in court on September the 4th.
