Chumash marine sanctuary’s goal is government control of our water

Lois Capps gave a speech on the proposed marine sanctuary at the foot of the Pismo Pier, and here introduces San Luis Obispo Mayor Jan Marx. Behind them are Matiwaiya [only gave one name] Ceremonial Elder with Wishtoyo Chumash Foundation and Luhui Ishi Cultural Resources and Education Director with the same organization.

I wonder about those who support this Chumash Heritage National Marine Sanctuary. Don’t they know that our coastline will then be controlled by the government, eventually by the Environmental Protection Agency? That means goodbye to fresh fish and a total loss of the fishing industry because fishermen will not be able to fish there. And should we want to go to desalinization (which in my mind will be the answer to our water shortage), that will be outlawed as well.

And back to governmental control of our water. That’s the goal here, folks. Open your eyes.
