Fisheries minister trying to do through the back door what she couldn't do through the front?




I posed the following question today (Sept. 25th) during Question Period in the House of Commons.

Mr. Speaker,

It's amazing - the policy banning factory ships has just vanished into the Consevative air from the DFO website.

Let's get this straight, the minister OKed this huge trawler coming into the Gulf of St. Lawrence just months after Atlantic Canadian fishermen rallied to stop her attack on fleet separation.

It's like she's trying to do through the back door what she couldn't do through the front door.

Mr. Speaker,

Why is the minister making policy for well-connected Conservative friends like the Sullivans, instead of protecting the fishermen and families of Atlantic Canada?
