A knowledgable fisherman’s words fall on deaf ears – THERE’S SOMETHING WRONG WITH THE COD!

In response to John Gillett, Inshore fisherman from Twillingate, letter of December 8th, published in the telegram, “There’s something wrong with cod”. This is one of many he has written over the years, a very will spoken, and knowledgeable fisherman and sad to say his letters like many others have fallen on deaf ears. Although this Province has survived on the wealth of the ocean and is our hope for the future, we are unable to elect politicians, both Federal and Provincial, who are willing to try and get this great resource back on track so that the children of John Gillett and myself and others can have a bright future and stay in this Province. The fishery is in a mess and I don’t see any politician willing to take this on. (Ret) Capt. Wilfred Bartlett Green Bay South [email protected] 20:11
