New Canadian adventure / by Martin Toft

Planning my next adventure with Senator Philip Ozouf...the North-Atlantic cod fisheries in The Gaspe Peninsula, Canada where Jersey firms in the 17th, 18th & 19th centuries administered merchant capital flow of exotic commodities as a blueprint for a future offshore island finance industry. Interestingly enough, it was a Jersey Banking crisis in the 1880s that ended the very profitable transatlantic trade...another excellent example of Jersey operating as an Entrepôt. 

Financial support towards travel costs from Jersey Arts Trust greatly appreciated! @JerseyArtsTrust @philipozouf @archisle1
