MCILVEEN: EI changes unconscionable, undemocratic

If you wanted a good example of somebody who’s been targeted by an unfeeling government, you couldn’t do better than Crystal MacKinnon of Bay St. Lawrence. The young widow and mother of two children, a girl, 8, and a boy, 9, works during the season from three to six months a year on her uncle’s fishing boat, up to 12 hours a day, and collects EI and mends gear in the winter. Some days, she’s up well before 3:30 a.m. so the boat can reach distant crabbing grounds. [email protected]
