Crousc Shore) said the ban is another example of the "ham-lianded, half-hearted, slip shod" restric- tions on Canadian fishermen in general. The government had removed sick-mariners benefits and the subsidy but hail restricted the fishing of haddock and swordfish and now salmon. KNEW OF DANCEIl Governments bad known since 1964 that the salmon were in serious danger but had done nothing despite warnings year S after year by MPs from the At- lantic provinces and Quebec. I Danish delegates had told an international conference in 19G9 that "when the salmon are we will fish for something Mr. Crousc said. But those 'Riy Van External Affairs Minister Mitchell Stiarp and Mr. Davis, had done nothing. He said the government also is doing nothing about the down salmon fishing of Norway and Sweden. lie said IhB government will replace only the capital outlay of salmon fishermen. It was doing nothing about the loss of livelihood. Tom Harriett (NDP-Comox Alhcrni) said he hopes the an nounccmenl is not a portent of a similar announcement dealing with Pacific salmon. SHAME Tim DANES j lie said Mr. Davis had said j outside Ihe House last week Ilia it is honed to shame the Dane out of fishing for salmon. Mr. Barnett suggested that i this docs not work, Canada ma have to consider harvesting th salmon while they still ar available.
