    Leona AglukkaqOn behalf of my family I would like to express our heartfelt prayers and condolences to the family and friends of Corporal Nathan Cirillo for his sacrifice in the line of duty. Corporal Cirillo will forever be remembered as a great Canadian. I would also like to extend our thoughts and prayers to those affected and recovering from yesterday’s heinous attack. In addition, I owe my deepest gratitude to Sergeant-at-Arms Kevin Vickers and the rest of our first responders and police forces. I will never forget the personal risk that these brave women and men went through yesterday in order to protect those of us at Parliament and ensure that we made it home to our families. Canada is a great country and we have given many sacrifices over the years to ensure that Canadians can enjoy a free and safe society. As we move on from the events of yesterday, I want to say thank you to all who have expressed concern and support to me and my family during this difficult time. Nagligivapsi.

    Gail SheaWhen we formed government, the lobster fishery was facing a number of challenges. We took action, we worked with the industry and he invested $50 million in the Atlantic lobster sustainability program. The results are undeniable, Mr. Speaker, since 2007, total lobster landings have increased by 93%. And our last lobster exports for a high of $1.1 billion last year. Our government, Mr. Speaker, led by my seat mate, has worked to secure trade agreements to expand agreements for Canadian lobster and expand more markets for delicious Canadian lobster. http://youtu.be/1TaySKOlr8Y

    Leona AglukkaqI was honoured to have been able to see my longtime friend, Elisapee Sheutiapik receive the 2014 Voice of Hope Award last night. I am so proud of her accomplishments and the work she has done with the Angel Street Project. When Elisapee created the Angel Street Project I was Nunavut’s Health Minister and the Minister for Status of Women. I knew right away that she had created a campaign with the power to bring about fundamental change and that her efforts deserved the full support of the territory’s government. Thanks to the project’s growing success, cities in at least seven different provinces and territories have created their own Angel Streets to take a public stand against domestic violence and draw ongoing attention to this important issue. Here are some photos from last night that I would like to share:

    Gail SheaAnnand Clams Ready to Dig into Business October 15, 2014 - Charlottetown, PEI – Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency The Honourable Gail Shea, Minister of Fisheries and Oceans, on behalf of the Honourable Rob Moore, Minister of State (Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency), and PEI Minister of Innovation and Advanced Learning Allen Roach announced combined funding of $250,000 for Annand Clams to open a new facility to produce value- added bar clam products. Annand Clams is purchasing equipment for their new facility, which will allow them to create value-added product lines to meet a growing demand for bar clams. This facility will be the only bar clam processing facility in Atlantic Canada, and will give fishers a secure market to sell their products. Quick Facts: The Government of Canada, through ACOA’s Business Development Program, provided funding of $45,000 to help the company purchase the equipment. The Government of Prince Edward Island provided an additional $220,000 through Innovation PEI ($15,000) and Finance PEI ($205,000). Annand Clams currently sells four value-added products including fresh frozen clams, clams on the half-shell, deep fried bar clams and bar clam tarts. The company also plans to introduce a new product, bottled bar clams, in the near future. Bar clams are harvested on Prince Edward Island from April to December every year, and are typically shucked and canned or bottled for use in commercial clam chowders, clam strips, and stews. Quotes: “Our Government remains focused on jobs, growth, and long-term prosperity, and we recognize that supporting small and medium-sized businesses in rural areas makes a significant economic impact in our region. This investment will help Annand Clams enter new markets and will strengthen our local economy.” - The Honourable Gail Shea, Minister of Fisheries and Oceans, on behalf of the Honourable Rob Moore, Minister of State (Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency) “With long careers in the fishery and processing, the Annand family is perfectly positioned to develop the commercial potential of Prince Edward Island’s shellfish resources.

By growing our business and expanding our products lines, we are able to provide a stable market for local fishers and employment for local workers.” - David and Carla Annand, Co-Owners, Annand Clams

    Gail SheaStatement by the Minister of Fisheries and Oceans OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Oct. 19, 2014) - Fisheries and Oceans Minister Gail Shea made the following statement today, in response to the ongoing search and rescue operation off the coast of Haida Gwaii: "I would like to thank the Canadian Coast Guard and the Canadian Armed Forces for all their efforts and quick response. The coordinated efforts from all partners which also included other federal departments, the province of British Columbia and the Haida First Nation have ensured safety for all. Through close co-ordination between the Canadian Coast Guard and the Department of National Defence, the Government of Canada was able to take immediate action to halt the Russian-flagged ship Simushir from drifting into shore. Additionally, assistance provided by the US Coast Guard in the form of the USCGC Spar and a US Coast Guard Helicopter at the ready in Sandspit, BC, highlights the ongoing support that the US and Canada provide to each other when required - and for that I would also like to extend my appreciation. Thanks to these efforts, the ship is now being towed by the tug boat Barbara Foss, greatly reducing the risk of environmental impact. The situation is currently under control with the CCGS Sir Wilfrid Laurier and USCGC Spar providing escort services. This operation is expected to continue for the coming days as the ship makes its way to a port for repair. More resources remain ready to respond, including those prepared for environmental response, and will be deployed if necessary. Again, I would like to thank all parties involved in this operation, and for demonstrating that it is possible to prepare for the unanticipated in order to ensure positive outcomes." The Honourable Gail Shea, Minister of Fisheries and Oceans

The Government of Canada will ship 800 vials to the World Health Organization (WHO) in Geneva, beginning on Monday. The vaccine must be shipped very carefully, so it will be sent in three separate shipments as a precautionary measure. It will travel via specialized air courier, packed in dry ice and kept at -80 degrees Celsius. The vaccine is the result of over 10 years of research and innovation by Public Health Agency of Canada scientists, and it could be a promising tool in fighting Ebola. We are sharing this global resource with our international partners in support of global public health.
