Letter to the Honourable Bernadette Jordan, Minister of Fisheries, Oceans and the Canadian Coast Guard, regarding the events that are rapidly unfolding in St. Mary’s Bay
September 18, 2020
The Honourable Bernadette Jordan
Minister of Fisheries, Oceans and the Canadian Coast Guard
House of Commons
Ottawa, Ontario K1A 0A6
Dear Minister Jordan,
On behalf of Council for the Municipality of the District of Clare, I am writing to you regarding the events that are rapidly unfolding in Nova Scotia’s St. Mary’s Bay. We are in constant communication with our federal and provincial counterparts and are keeping a close eye on the situation.
Clare is a peaceful community. However, tensions are quickly escalating, and we are gravely concerned for the safety of all fishers involved and for the safety of our residents.
As this is a federal issue, we call upon the Department of Fisheries and Oceans as well as the Royal Canadian Mounted Police to increase enforcement efforts in order to ensure the safety of the public both on land and on the water.
Given the seriousness of this matter, your prompt attention would be greatly appreciated.
Cc. Chris d’Entremont, Member of Parliament for West Nova
Hon. Gordon Wilson, Nova Scotia Minister of Environment and MLA for Clare-Digby
Mark Furey, Attorney General and Minister of Justice
Hon. Keith Colwell, Nova Scotia Minister of Fisheries and Aquaculture
