Food fishery extended




I posed the following question today (Sept. 23rd) during Question Period in the House of Commons.

Mr. Speaker,

The fall food fishery off Newfoundland and Labrador has been officially underway since Saturday, but there hasn’t been much activity on the water because of the poor weather.

The food fishery is only 8 days long – forcing people to either risk their lives in dangerous conditions to catch what they can before it closes …

Or else go without.

People have died, Mr. Speaker.

Will the Conservatives take poor weather and people’s safety into account?

Will they agree to extend the fall food fishery?
