Ryan Cleary’s opening address to Moratorium Story, Northern Cod 30 Years On — a June 30th non-partisan event to mark the anniversary of the shut down of this province’s most iconic fishery, and the biggest layoff in Canadian history.


CBC's The Broadcast also carried much of Cleary's speech, as well as portions of speeches by former Premier Clyde Wells, and lawyer/former leader of the Opposition Ches Crosbie, who's also son of the late John Crosbie.
