Newfoundland Crab Boats Force Canadian Navy Destroyer Back Out To Sea…
One ship was waiting outside St. John’s harbour Tuesday and another was waiting to leave as crab fishermen blocked the port’s entry for a second day. There were unconfirmed reports that a second, smaller group of fishing vessels blocked entry to Bay Bulls harbour, south of St. John’s, early Tuesday.
A Canadian navy destroyer was unable to dock in Newfoundland as planned. “He’s gone back to sea,” said Richard McKenzie of the Canadian Coast Guard’s marine traffic services.
A question of superior firepower, no doubt.
