(March 3, 2022) – Craig Pardy, PC Shadow Minister of Fisheries and MHA for Bonavista, along with the entire PC Caucus are tipping their hats in recognition of Icewater Seafoods and Alberto Wareham as they cancel all imports of Russian fish products in a sacrificial move to show solidarity with the people of Ukraine.

As Russia’s invasion of Ukraine heads into its second week, Alberto Wareham and Icewater Seafoods knew that they had a decision to make as the situation in Ukraine began to develop rapidly. Wareham’s decision is a tough business decision in which led to them cancelling all foreign imports of Cod Fish from Russia.

“Like many people, I am watching what is happening in Eastern Europe with great concern for the Ukrainian people. My thoughts are with innocent civilians who are now dealing with violence in their towns and communities. As Canada joins the international effort for peace in Europe, our PC Caucus recognizes that we all have a role to play right here at home by standing in support of the people of Ukraine and the team at Icewater Seafoods did just that,” said Pardy.

“There is a great risk of daunting operational challenges, but now more than ever it is important for all seafood producers to step in and examine alternative supply options that supply the plant in Arnold’s Cove.”

“In the interim and going forward, we look to our seafood producers to explore all possible avenues to ensure that we do not have to rely on Russian imports. Newfoundland and Labrador has some of the richest resources available, let’s ensure that we capitalize on our resources right here at home.”
