The Canada-European Union free trade agreement is coming. Labrador and Newfoundland are both part of Canada. Sadly, but ultimately, Canada controls our fisheries.
CBC will feature an interview this Saturday with OCI President Martin Sullivan, who by all accounts will start to hit back at the FFAW which has been hammering the company since closures of plants in Port Union and Marystown last fall. “They proposed to us that we should shut down Fortune, we should move the Fortune operations to Marystown,” Sullivan insisted to host David Cochrane. “That’s the hypocrisy of the union. They’re out in Fortune saying we want Fortune and Marystown to operate, and they’re in telling us that we should close Fortune and move it to Marystown.” Make time to watch the full interview on the CBC on Saturday at 7:30 p.m… with the story so one-sided so far, it should be interesting to hear from OCI.
