Sup­port from FISH-NL

The Southern Gazette - - FRONT PAGE -

Ryan Cleary, pres­i­dent of the Fed­er­a­tion of In­de­pen­dent Sea Har­vesters of New­found­land and Labrador (FISH-NL), said he came out to Grand Bank to show his sup­port for Meade.

“I’ve known Wayne for a while now and he’s a good per­son, a good fish­er­man — he sup­ports Fish-NL and I’m here to sup­port him.”

Cleary said he sup­ports the court’s de­ci­sion in the mat­ter.

He said Meade had been grow­ing in­creas­ingly frus­trated with is­sues within the fishery for years.

“The spring of 2016, he had a cou­ple of demon­stra­tions down here,” said Cleary. “The frus­tra­tion down here (in) peo­ple like Wayne Meade has been brew­ing for a long time, and make no mis­take, it was frus­tra­tion — it had noth­ing to do with FISHNL, that was frus­tra­tion within the FFAW.”
