Conservatives set NL fishermen adrift

On Wednesday, June 8th, I asked the following during Question Period in the House of Commons:
Mr. Speaker,
When the honourable member from Pembroke said last February that Newfoundlanders should look after themselves when it comes to search and rescue, Canadians were shocked.
Nobody realized this would actually become Conservative government policy.
Closing the Maritime rescue subcentre in St. John’s will endanger people’s lives.
Will the minister commit to reversing this dangerous decision, and show he’s serious about the safety of Newfoundlanders and Labradorians?
