The canneries and fish processing plants have help from the Canadian government. They need people to catch the fish that they process.
Canneries & fish processing plants need (incomplete list of real needs!):
Let’s take this a bit further
– To commercially catch a fish one needs (incomplete list of real needs!):
- a Boat
- a Fishing License
- Fishing Gear
- Communication Equipment
- Nets or Tackle
- a Crew
– To build a Boat one needs (incomplete list of real needs!):
- Space, preferably Light Industrial
- Material – Aluminum, Steel, Wood, Fiberglass, Engine, Doors, Door Knobs, Windows, Windshield Wipers, Steering Wheels, Hydraulics, Electronics…
- a Crew – Welders, Carpenters, Fiberglass Specialists, Machinists, Mechanics, Electricians, Plumbers (only sometimes)…
- Sales People and Office Staff
- a Customer
- old boats need the same thing at their beginnings
– that ‘Space’ thing (incomplete list of real needs!):
- Light Industrial or Commercial Space
- a place large enough to build that boat in
- 30′ depth for a small boat
- under cover or inside a building for those smaller boats – a shipyard works for both smaller and larger boats
- doors or gates wide enough to allow the finished or partially finished boat to be pulled out
- property large enough for a semi with a trailer to maneuver in

Not an exhaustive list by any standard.
An exhaustive list would include every industry and every large, medium and small business, run by a Canadian. An exhaustive list would include every person in Canada, every person around the world. We can connect every one if the list is exhaustive enough. Consilience cannot be either ignored or done away with. The chain of supply is consilience. The chain of supply, is broken.
Mr. Trudeau, with all due respect… What do you suppose your patch for the Fish Processing Plants is going to do without the necessary support for all of the other small and independent businesses (Fishers, Farmers, Truck Drivers) that you have cut out of this chain? All those businesses that the fish processing plants and canneries depend on. All those, mostly small, businesses and individuals that do not qualify for any of your handouts?
We can talk about the Meat Processing Plants another day. I am certain that you really will be getting to the individuals that you have been seeming to ignore. It is just that those individuals who are without support are just not nearly as needy as the multi-million dollar grossing corporations that own the fish and meat processing plants. Or, maybe we should just follow your money offshore?
