I asked the following question today (June 6th) during Question Period in the House of Commons:
Why doesn’t the Minister go to Trepassey , Arnold’s Cove, Burgeo and the other outport communities that will be losing their DFO offices.
Try to explain to those people how job losses and shut downs are going to somehow make the fisheries better.
Explain how they’ll be able to regulate the fisheries with no local office.
Mr. Speaker, consider this an invitation.
Will the minister come with me to these outports to explain to the people why the Conservative government is abandoning them?
