WOODSTOCK -- The Island’s fishing industry is the next in a series of public policy forums the New Democratic Party of P.E.I. is hosting across the province.
The forum on the fishing industry will be held at the Rodd Mill River Resort in Woodstock on Wednesday, April 2 from 7 to 9 p.m.
NDP leader Mike Redmond points out the forums are conducted in a non-partisan way, thus allowing people of all political stripes to participate and benefit.
For the fishing forum, he said, organizers have made special effort to invite groups and individuals who have a particular interest in, or knowledge of, fisheries issues. Through discussions, they hope to explore what’s waking well, what needs improvement and how the long-term viability of this sector of the Island’s economy can be improved.
Panelists will provide commentary before the forum is thrown open to discussion by all forum participants and members of the general public.
By hosting such gatherings, the NDP says it is hoping to ensure its policies are well informed and relevant to the needs and aspiration of Islanders of all political views.
