Digby Fisherman in Spanish Jail: A group of people in Digby County, Nova Scotia have just finished a two-day email blitz to "Free Philip Halliday". The 54-yr-old Digby fisherman was arrested when police raided a ship off the Spanish coast last December, and seized 1.5 tonnes of cocaine hidden in the hold. Friends and supporters of the Halliday family began the email campaign to convince Canada's minister of Foreign Affairs and the Prime Minister's office to take a closer look at his situation. CBC reporter Jennifer Henderson spoke with Halliday supporter Teri Faessler.
