Day 10: Historic Canadians support a moratorium on dragging the high seas!

Today in St. John's, the statues of John Cabot (left) and Sir Wilfred Grenfell (right) posed with signs of support for a moratorium. Cabot, the 'discoverer' of Newfoundland, once remarked that the cod off Canada appeared so thick that a person "could walk across their backs". Today, Cabot would surely support a moratorium that protects fish habitat to ensure the survival of fish populations for years to come.

Comments:
It's so sad that we keep whinging about how we have lost what once made Canada great, but still don't take measures to keep the world's oceans from dying completely.
