Mr. Speaker, I am sorry, but “delighted” is not the way I describe the unemployed citizens in my riding.
The lobster season opened this week, but clouds of uncertainty hang over the industry.
Fishers met in Moncton yesterday to express their concerns about the cuts to Fisheries and Oceans Canada that affect the already unsatisfactory dates for the fishing season, the minimum size for lobsters, and much else. All these issues need to be resolved as quickly as possible.
Will the minister take her responsibilities seriously, go to Moncton, and find the appropriate solutions to protect the future of this crucial industry?
