Our government and our province’s key fisheries players are no closer to finding common ground. A report about making the fishery leaner and more efficient has divided them — and the stalemate continues. Fisheries Minister Clyde Jackman participated in a two-hour meeting in St. John’s yesterday afternoon which resulted in: not much. Jackman is sticking to his demand that before anything else happens, the industry must come up with a concrete restructuring plan for the fishery. Earle McCurdy, Fish, Food and Allied Workers president, along with the Association of Seafood Producers, wants our government to proceed immediately with the expensive and politically explosive process of downsizing the fishery. “The idea that we just let it drop because it’s politically unpalatable – that’s politically unpalatable,” McCurdy said after the meeting.
