Con MP breaks ranks; doesn't support elimination of owner-operator, fleet separation policies
The elimination of the owner-operator and fleet-separation policies — “sacred pillars” of the East Coast fishery that the Conservative government is said to be considering removing — would trigger the end of the traditional inshore fishery.
But at least one Conservative is breaking ranks with his party.
New Brunswick MP John Williamson sent a flyer to constituents this week with the above message.
I wonder if a flyer was sent to the home of Fisheries and Oceans Minister Keith Ashfield, whose riding is also in New Brunswick.
No worries - I'll make sure to email him the link to this site.
