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.

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.
