Fisheries Facts still around

The Usual Crowd have been bleating the past few days about a set of facts dealing with foreign overfishing that were on the federal fish department's website.

TUC was bothered because facts were being presented, versus the palaver they usually spread around on radio call-in shows.

Anyway, the piece - Overfishing Myths and Realities - is still on the site. It just got moved to the backgrounder archives.

You can find it by heading to dfo-mpo.gc.ca, clicking through to the English or French version of the site and then looking for "Archives" under the vertical banner on the right hand side that is headed "Find Info On...".

Nice to see the facts stay around and aren't being removed because of agitation by misinformed myth-mongers.
