I think the important story is that even though the cod fishery has demised, Canada has a whole has moved forward and is in a far better position than it was before. Yes, the cod fishermen lost their livlihood (at least part of it), but if every one else is better off, then it seems like all is good to me. Some will benefit, some will suffer, thus is the nature of political decisions and government. As long as the number that is benefiting is large, then that is okay. Additionally, if there was ever a sector that I would pick to face a demise, it would first be the fishery and then low skill manufacturing. In my opinion, it is much better to lose these type of job instead of losing IT jobs or office/professional jobs.

I only know what I have read and it isn't much but a one sided report so........ Why and how and by whom was the fish industry shut down? What percentage was export? Are you or someone saying there are no cod left? I may not be a cod fisherman but I'm not a sucker either. hehe If you have over fished the area that is too bad for you. Now you wait for nature to take it's long course.
