MLA Doesn't Want Lobster Protests To Escalate

NB lobster fishermen still looking for a fair price to protect their way of life...with Maine lobster going for just $2 a pound, the lobster crisis is causing tension in many Maritime communities.

Shediac Cap-Pele MLA Victor Boudreau says he understands the reasoning behind the truck blockades and protests but doesn't want things to escalate.

Boudreau says it's incumbent on the Premier and fisheries minister to create both a short and long-term solution.
