admin no comments

first_imgFisheries and Aquaculture Minister Sterling Belliveau is extending his sympathies to the family and friends of a missing fisherman from Bear Point, Shelburne Co. The fisherman reportedly fell overboard into rough waters off the coast of Cape Sable Island Tuesday, May 3. The search has been called off. “My thoughts and prayers are with the community of Shelburne and all fishermen after this tragedy,” said Mr. Belliveau. “Fishermen face difficult and sometimes dangerous conditions. I encourage anyone who makes a living on the water to make safety a priority because conditions can sometimes be unpredictable.” Mr. Belliveau thanked local fishermen, the Canadian Coast Guard, RCMP divers, helicopter crews and search and rescue volunteers for their quick response, as well as everyone in the community who supported the search efforts.last_img read more
