    Floundering Fishery, that's a good one.

    CORRECTED COPY: If there were 200 farms in NL in 1990 and in that year these 200 farms produced $500 million worth of product, then 15 to 20 years later there were only 100 farms producing $1 Billion worth of product, (for about a 4 fold increase in production value per farm from $2.5 to $10 Million per plant), and to produce this 4 fold increase in production value, these farms now needed to hire only half as many farm hands as they did in 1990 (saving about $100 million every year in costs less payments to their farm hands), why would any government in its right mind agree that the number of farms needed to be further reduced? Surely the government is being sold one hell of a bill of goods if they buy into this so-called RATIONALIZATION policy (a policy rooted in GREED, a policy that has been going on in NL since 1990, a policy which is rooted in negativity, a policy which is representative of a government that has no positive vision, no positive strategy, and no positive action plan to benefit our coastal fishing communities. Making a few wealthy processors more wealthy, and doing so by removing that wealth from the ordinary citizen, from the plant workers, from the communities, from the fishers and from the indirect jobs previously associated with this industry ---- is nothing short of a betrayal of our culture, our economy, and our social well-being as a people. Wake up Danny. Wake up Clyde Jackman.
