Progressive Conservative

Mr. MacLean (Queens):

In the last five years, the Department of Fisheries has paid subsidies to encourage the catching of dogfish for meal production and oil production. In neither case has the result been satisfactory from the point of view of reducing stocks. However, I am prepared to consider any new proposals which offer a reasonable chance of success.
