HERNEWOOD — An NDP public policy forum on the challenges of Island fisheries will take place on Wednesday, April 2, from 7 to 9 p.m. in the Hunter-Duvar Room of Rodd Mill River resort.
By hosting these gatherings, the NDP P.E.I. hopes to ensure its policies are well informed and relevant to the needs and aspirations of Islanders of all political views, says provincial Leader Mike Redmond.
He said the forums are conducted in a non-partisan way, which allows people from all political stripes to participate and benefit.
This event is open to the public. Forum organizers have made a special effort to invite groups and individuals who have a particular interest in or knowledge of fisheries issues, in the hope that discussion will allow exploration of what is working well in the fishery, what needs improvement and how the long-term viability of this important part of our economy can be improved.
