Former Premier of Newfoundland and Federal Cabinet Minister
Brian Tobin shot to national and international fame in 1995, when, as Fisheries Minister, he forced the captain of a Spanish trawler to retreat beyond Newfoundland's fishing boundaries. After a four-year term as Premier of Newfoundland, he returned to the federal arena in 1999. As Minister of Industry, he was instrumental in developing an innovation agenda for Canada and was one of the first Canadians to promote the idea that research and innovation are the keys to long-term success for Canadian business.
