Mr. Speaker, the only human presence on Sable Island is at the research station and they carry out important studies.
A federal working group has recommended that the federal government maintain the station but last week the Minister of Fisheries and Oceans was non-committal.
The trust that is running the station cannot function much longer without a positive decision from the minister. The people working at the station deserve an answer before Christmas. When can we expect an answer and an announcement from the minister?
