The Honourable Derrick Bragg, Minister of Fisheries, Forestry and Agriculture, today offered condolences on the passing of Reg Anstey:

“I wish to extend condolences to the family and friends of Mr. Reg Anstey on news of his passing today. His death leaves a huge void that will be felt by the province’s fishing sector, particularly the many fishers and plant workers who admired his lifelong dedication and tireless advocacy for those who earn a living from the sea.

I had the pleasure of having many discussions with Mr. Anstey and experiencing his enthusiasm for improving the well-being of the thousands of individuals engaged in the province’s fishing sector. He could always be relied upon as trustworthy source of information which he was always willing to share.

During his career he served in many instrumental roles that have helped shape and modernize the Newfoundland and Labrador fishing sector. Most recently he served as Chair of the Fish Processing Licensing Board where he shared his extensive knowledge to help skillfully navigate the province’s fishing industry through an unprecedented period of global uncertainty.

His passing is a significant loss to the fishing industry and the province as a whole. He will be missed indeed.”

We are a family farm in Ontario showing you what we do on our farm to produce eggs and what goes on day to day. Every day we do chores, gather eggs and make feed. On our farm we plant the crops and harvest them to feed the chickens, also we start our laying hens from day old chicks and raise them to be the best birds they can be to give you a grade A quality egg. After we are finished looking after our chickens, anything could happen from washing, waxing, fixing, welding, working on engines, working on classic cars, and more. I hope everyone enjoys cheers.
