    This is simply not true, Jason Marr wasn’t in Pubnico, it was his sister Jolene that was there and she was not barricaded in against her will, she had the choice to leave but she didn’t want to, she chose to stay, to “protect her brother Jason’s lobsters” while he was at the other plant

    And seriously, no one can get upset with the media, they are only getting one side, their side
    They have no other side to report
    Because they are speaking up And we aren’t because we have been threaten with murder and violence if we do.
    We were told not to talk to the media, don’t post anything

    But this has gone too far, our reputation as the provinces second largest export is being slandered by the media. Are there no laws anymore?
