Statement made on 24 April 2012 by Senator Catherine Callbeck

Hon. Catherine S. Callbeck:

Honourable senators, my question is for the Leader of the Government in the Senate. Earlier this year the government released a discussion paper called The Future of Canada's Commercial Fisheries. This paper has created a lot of concern among fishers, especially about changes to the fleet separation and owner-operator policies that were put in place 30 years ago. The consultations on this document ended on March 15, roughly six weeks ago, and DFO officials indicated that they would be compiling a "what we heard" document that would be public.

Would the Leader of the Government in the Senate check with DFO to find out when that document might be released?
