    It is shamefull that Danny (the people's? premier), Mr. Jackman, the Province, after all this time and all the effort being put into this MOU process, that the communities --- those who are adjacent to, and depend on the fishery resource, have no say in what will happen to THEIR resource ---- a resource that is the lifeblood of their communities and all of rural Newfoundland and Labrador.

    As a former federal bureaucrat, I know all too well what it means when it is said that the communities will be brought into the process AT THE APPROPRIATE TIME ---- that is when all the key options, strategies, processes and decisions have already been made IN FAVOUR of those who are interested only in maximizing profits ---- and that means shutting down plants, sending our resources offshore for processing jobs in China and elsewhere, increasing the offshore (big boat) fishery at the expense of the ecologically, sustainably, and rural Newfoundland friendly small boat inshore fishery.

    Will rural Newfoundland and Labrador survive Danny Williams? It doesn't look good.
