This Week On ‘Global Currents’…
“The Stamp Fishery: Loss of a Dream”
Saturday, October 28th at 7 p.m. ET/PT (60 mins.)
The Stamp Fishery: Loss of a Dream takes a critical look at the ailing fishing industry in Newfoundland and Labrador and how communities are left dependent on employment insurance (EI) due to generations of over-fishing and government enforced quotas. Through the eyes of two reluctant “stamp fishers” – whose family have fished the shores for nearly 100 years – the Johnson brothers take viewers on a journey of revelations, examining how this EI policy has impacted all sectors of the province’s economy, leaving more than half of its population dependent on Canadian taxpayers’ money.
