    Gail Shea“I am very pleased to announce that this year, Prince Edward Island tuna fishermen will benefit from a nearly 30t increase in Atlantic Bluefin tuna quota. Our Government was successful in advocating for an increase at the International Commission for the Conservation of Atlantic Tuna (ICCAT) last fall, as well as securing a 109t transfer from Mexico for another year. I am proud of our Government’s efforts to represent the interests of Island fishermen on the world stage, and this increase will provide economic opportunities for the more than 300 tuna fishermen across the Province. This year’s increase presents an opportunity to deliver on the long-standing commitment to review the current sharing arrangement. Several fishermen and associations are of the view that the shares put in place in 2004 unfairly penalized fishermen that participate in other core fisheries, and that these shares do not maximize the economic opportunities that this fishery has to offer. I have listened to these concerns and have therefore directed DFO officials to engage with fishermen starting this fall in order to begin a comprehensive review of the current sharing arrangement. This review would take into account the evolution of the fishery over the last decade, the need for rationalization, increased science, and the need to maximize economic opportunities for fishermen. This review should be completed before the beginning on the 2016 fishing season.”

    Kellie LeitchReturned yesterday from a trade mission to Texas that focused on supporting Canadian women entrepreneurs as they grow their businesses and create jobs and economic growth benefitting all Canadians. Trade mission delegates took part in the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC) National Conference & Business Fair in Austin, Texas, and learned about opportunities for doing business in the United States. We also met with government officials, businesswomen and representatives of businesswomen’s associations from across the United States, as well as Canada and Mexico, to gain insight into how the Government of Canada can assist women entrepreneurs. I was pleased to lead this trade mission to Texas, which has opened new doors of opportunity for the outstanding Canadian businesswomen who participated.

    Kellie LeitchPrime Minister Stephen Harper today issued the following statement on terrorist attacks that occurred in France, Kuwait and Tunisia: “I was both saddened and angered today to learn of the heinous terrorist attacks that occurred in France, Kuwait and Tunisia that claimed the lives of many, and injured others. “On behalf of all Canadians, Laureen and I offer our deepest condolences to the family and friends of those lost today and a speedy recovery to those injured. “Canadian agencies have reached out and offered French authorities our full support as they bring the perpetrators of this heinous crime to justice. “We mourn today with France and stand behind our close friend on this dark day. “Canada also strongly condemns the unfolding terrorist attacks in Kuwait and Tunisia that have killed and injured many. Our hearts and prayers are with the families and friends of all victims. “The international jihadist movement has declared war on Canada and the shared values of freedom, democracy and human dignity. “Canada will not sit on the sidelines as this global terrorist group unleashes senseless violence on innocent civilians from Europe to the Middle East. We will continue to protect Canadians, support the international coalition to degrade the jihadist threat, and stand shoulder to shoulder with our allies in defiance of this evil.”

    Julian FantinoOn behalf of Liviana and I, I offer our thoughts and prayers to the victims and their families of this senseless crime. Canadians will not tolerate being held hostage in their own communities by thugs and criminals who undermine our security and put our families at risk. After forty years in law enforcement, I know how important it is to hold violent criminals to account for their crimes. It is for these types of violent crimes that our Government passed mandatory minimum sentences for gun crimes, ensuring the perpetrator faces the full force of the law. We are also putting victims’ rights ahead of criminals in our justice system. I want to thank our men and women in uniform who everyday work hard to keep our community safe. We must remain vigilant, however undeterred from living freely in our community. I offer my prayers to the families during this most difficult time. Any individual who can help solve this crime should contact York Regional Police at: 1-905-773-1221, ext. 7865 or Crime Stoppers at: 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).

    Gail SheaThis past winter’s higher than average seasonal ice accumulation around Prince Edward Island resulted in delays in the lobster openings in several LFAs. I have listened to the requests of our hard-working fishermen over the past few weeks and I am pleased to announce that lobster fishermen in all Gulf LFAs will have an additional four days to fish. This decision was based on several factors including the fact that this is a sensitive time for lobster reproduction and the increased risk of fishing soft shell lobster. This four-day extension strikes the right balance between ensuring we protect our precious resource while allowing our fishermen to get more days out fishing. Our Government has always been there to support our PEI lobster fishermen. Since 2006 we have invested over $60 million in our province’s small craft harbours. Between 2010 and 2014, we have provided more than $11 million to PEI lobster organizations under the Atlantic Lobster Sustainability Measures. Fewer traps and licences have reduced pressure on stocks and improved the viability of the industry for our lobster fishermen in PEI. I am extremely proud of what this Government has delivered for PEI fishermen.

    Kellie LeitchPrime Minister Stephen Harper today issued the following statement to mark the National Day of Remembrance for Victims of Terrorism: “Thirty years ago today, in June 1985, a terrorist attack took place that killed all 329 passengers and crew members aboard Air India Flight 182. On this sombre anniversary, we stand in solidarity with the friends and families who lost loved ones in that heinous attack and honour those lost. On this sad day, let us also remember all those who were victims of such senseless acts of hate and empathize with the families left to mourn. “Today, Laureen and I had the privilege of laying a wreath in the Hall of Honour on Parliament Hill in remembrance. We were deeply moved by this solemn tribute as well as by our meeting with families impacted by acts of terror. “It is no secret that we live in troubled times. The world is now faced with an enemy who opposes the values we hold most dear: freedom, democracy, tolerance and openness. This enemy is violent jihadism and we cannot and will not ignore the threat it presents to Canadians here at home and abroad. “That is why we have joined our allies in a broad international coalition to fight the so-called Islamic State (ISIS). It is why we have provided our law enforcement and security agencies with significant new resources, legislation and other tools to fight terrorists and keep Canadians safe. The brave men and women of our military, our security agencies and our local law enforcement are the frontline that stands between peace and order, and fear and turmoil. We thank them for their vigilance and dedicated service. “On days such as this, I cannot help but cast my mind back to the Canadians who perished in Air India Flight 182 and in the World Trade Center attacks, to last year’s cowardly murders of Corporal Nathan Cirillo and Warrant Officer Patrice Vincent, and to the many terrorist activities that have been foiled by the vigilance of our security agencies. These recollections serve as a reminder that Canada is not immune to the threat of terrorism and that continued vigilance is essential. “As we mark the National Day of Remembrance for Victims of Terrorism, let us renew our resolve to continue responding to the terrorist threat with vigilance and decisive action. We owe this to the many victims lost to terrorism.”

    Kellie LeitchThe Honourable Dr. K. Kellie Leitch today issued the following statement to mark Father’s Day: “Today on Father’s Day, I want to first thank my Dad for his amazing commitment to our family. And let us all take the time to stop and honour those who's commitment, compassion and sacrifice have made indelible impacts on daughters and sons across the country, leading their children to brighter futures. "The work of a Dad never ends. Fathers are often awake early (before their kids), working hard through the day and not coming home until late, all with the intention of ensuring their families are properly provided for. They dedicate themselves to their families while demonstrating unconditional love and support. “Fathers instill important values in their children - like I learned from my father at the dinner table - hard work, respect, and integrity. These values are often imparted on their children when fathers demonstrate these values in their everyday lives. “On Father's Day let us properly take the time to thank our Dad's who sacrifice so much so that we may lead better lives."
