St. John’s, NL (January 10, 2019) – Ches Crosbie, Leader of the Official Opposition, said seals coming into local communities and salmon rivers in unusual numbers is a symptom of Ottawa’s failure to do its job to manage the fisheries sustainably.

“Unrestricted growth of the coastal seal population is putting the ecosystem out of balance and threatening fish stocks and the livelihood of the thousands of people in rural communities who depend on the fisheries,” said Crosbie.

“Instead of dealing with the root cause of the problem, federal officials are warning people not to interfere or they’ll be charged.  People don’t like federal officials threatening them for dealing with a problem that federal inaction created.”

“The silent seven MP’s from this province are disengaged on this issue too.  The Trudeau Liberals have failed to take the strong action required to manage the fisheries sustainably, and the Ball Liberals have let them off with it,” said Crosbie.
