This one goes to you (Geoff Parker) manager of the Hebron Project Hello to all ,I'm a former Newf in Alberta 31 years working in the oil/gasconsulting/design/engineering and yes I've worked 6-years on NF drilling/production rig/platforms here in Alberta. Past 31 years I've been trying to get employment back in NF,with no success. I guess you have to be American or a foreign worker to work for min.wage. So much for getting Newf's back home.If you check the stats the only Newf's that go back to NF is for retirement. Regards Former Newfoundlander

Fishing for the Future December 23, 2014

As the Newfoundland and Labrador fishery moves through a series of changes — in leadership at the Fish, Food and Allied Workers Union, in international trade deals, in changing stocks — The Telegram has pulled together a series of stories to place the present in context and provide thoughts on the future. The goal is to spark discussion on what we, as a province, want the fishery to look like, what we want it to be, what is possible.
