    Minister Jackman
    How ofter must you be told?
    First of all, you are not allowed to make any changes. Secondly, the ONLY change that can change the fishery is to remove the mononoply situation that government have entitled the merchants with.

    Here is an idea for 2011, anyone under the age of 55 buy the license back and allow them to re-train and then get them the hell out of the fishery. By doing this then the rest of the province can go about its daily business without having to hear about the bloody crab fishery.

    Why not follow the system in Newbrunswick - the fishermen there are getting a fair price of $2.35. The processors here are going to make a bonanza this year at $1.35 and government assisting them by eliminating licensing fees....nothing for the harvester only possibble bankruptcy.
    There must be heavy campaign donations being exchanged.

    If that means stepping on toes . You made the exact statemant in Gander at the 9th Constitutional Convention for the FFAW. The ONLY change you made since then was to allow OCI to ship raw material to China be processed. The only toes that you stepped on by doing that was to the plant workers by denying them that work and the harvesters by allowing a processor to catch fish.
    Remember Minister Jackman, that if you step on too many toes there is a very good possibility you might get stepped back.

    Oh this makes a boatload of sense. Bring in a legitimate model.....only dont bring it in this year, bring it in next year. Lets open a fishery for an unreasonable price and bankrupt the smaller processors in the province, then next year you will have even less options for the sale of your product. Great thinking Earle. Hey Earle if you really think your product is worth the price you want then accept the alaskan formula, it states that a dividend will be paid based on market prices at the end of the year. So if you believe your product is worth $1.35 then under this new model that requires tranparency maybe you will get $1.35 in the end, heck, maybe even more. Step up to the plate Earle and get this going.
