Prime Minister Threatens Sovereignty in the East
Even though amendments to NAFO got voted down 147 to 142 my Members of Parliment from across this country.
Even though all MPs from Newfoundland and Labrador have been strongly opposed to the NAFO amendment.
Even though fisheries experts and industry professionals have been shouting their disapproval.
Even though the amendments amount to an obvious breach in the sovereignty of the East, allowing foreign vessels to patrol Canadians in their own waters.
Even though NAFO itself shows a consistent disregard for quotas and even the conservation advice of its own scientists.
Even though NAFO has at its core European nations who this year banned seal products from the East Coast of Canada.
Even through all this - Harper pushes the NAFO amendments through. In what country would the leader dare go against the will of the people? None that call themselves a democracy. Canada under Harper is the globe's newest dictatorship.
