Fortune businessman Angus Stacey argues with Fish, Food and Allied Workers’ union president Earle McCurdy at the union's headquarters Monday afternoon, Oct. 22, 2012. Stacey travelled to St. John’s in support of a group of fishery workers who want their union to support an OCI proposal that would see the town’s plant open. Others in the crowd argue with McCurdy. Fortune Mayor Charles Penwell (in light blue jacket to the right of McCurdy) also questions McCurdy. He later has a discussion with NDP fisheries critic Chris Mitchelmore. Mitchelmore said that Ocean Choice International's latest proposal isn't good for the industry. He is then confronted by plant worker Marie Grandy.
