Bottom Feeders

The New Government of Canada proves again it is just like the Old Government of Canada. In this case it has refused to sign the international ban on bottom trawlers, the most destructive environmental form of deep sea fishing. Just as the Liberal government before them who refused to ban Whaling, the Conservatives support this destructive form of fishing. But in this case it is not for the benefit of fishing communities in the Maritimes or indigenous peoples, it is for the benefit of a few big state capitalized monopoly corporations. Who suck off the public teat with corporate subsidies.

The Fisheries Council of Canada, which represents fish processors and marketers, said it supports Hearn's "responsible, pragmatic and effective" approach to bottom trawling."
