Canadian media have echoed the announcement by Liberal Leader Stephane Dion who said that a Liberal government would pump millions into the fisheries industry, including more than $300 million to modernize fleets and aid fishermen who want to get out of the business.
Dion said 70 million (Canadian dollar) would be spent in an exit program for those fishermen who want to get out of the business.
A 250 million (Canadian dollar) Green Fisheries and Transport Fund would provide rebates and other incentives for technologies that will reduce fuel consumption and energy.
