Canadian Conservatives Commit to Sea Farming

QUEBEC, CANADA - The Canadian Conservative Party has promised that if t is re-elected it will commit $7 million to developing the sea farming industry over the next three years.

The Honourable Christian Paradis, Conservative Party candidate in Mgantic-Lrable was accompanied on this occasion by Mr. Darryl Gray, the Conservative candidate in Gaspsieles-de-la-Madeleine.

The Conservative Part say that this investment will leverage the economic development of Quebecs coastal regions, which are currently facing a decline in fishing activity. Part of this investment will also contribute to innovation.

Sea farming and aquaculture could create viable, year-round employment for over 47,000 people in coastal, rural and Aboriginal communities. The Conservative Party wants to ensure that Quebecs regions will be able to make the most of this opportunity by giving them the boost they need, indicated Minister Paradis.

The only jobs Bloc MPs have created in their 18 years in Ottawa are their own! Unlike the Bloc, Stephen Harpers Conservative Party has a plan to enable Quebecs regions to fully develop their potential. Whats more, the Conservatives will have the power to keep their commitment to invest these millions of dollars in sea farming development in Gaspsie, les-de-la-Madeleine and Cte-Nord, said Mr. Gray.
