CANADA: throne speech mentions fisheries management as outdated (sic) and promises change

On 3 March 2010 er Excellency the Right Honourable Michaëlle Jean, Governor General of Canada, delivered the Government's Speech from the Throne.

Here is what she said on fisheries:

It (Canada's governement) will introduce new legislation to reform Canada’s outdated system of fisheries management.

Does this mean that fisheries subsidies will be prohibited in Canada? Or that Individual Fishing Quotas will be introduced with the help of subsidies, as it is the case now in the US?

Watch this spot.

Here is the link to the speech:
