BMO Financial Group has reaffirmed its support for customers affected by the downturn in the Atlantic lobster fishery, and encouraged Canadians across the country to show their support by buying lobster this holiday season.
In its press release, a BMO official called on Canadians to support Canadian lobster fishers by making lobster a part of their New Year’s festivities. “I encourage everyone to bring more lobster home. There’s no better way to enjoy New Year’s Eve than to have lobster. Prices have collapsed to a near 20-year low, and Canadian lobster fishers need your support. You’ll be having a treat and helping out your fellow Canadians at the same time.”
