    So they caught the criminal who did it ? Any reason why they don’t show them ?

  2. Trouble with human beings as they all need equal rights or one side feels screwed

  3. lobster – the most overrated and overpriced food.

  4. Fishermen. They’re called fishermen.

  5. “Peaceful vandalism”

  6. Same rules for everyone OR..this is inevitable….and it will get worse.

      @Abdel Habib moron.

    • only the right thing one Law over all one rule over all also if someone screaming it is our way of life then no use of machines not even a synthetic filament what a hypocrisy way of life with machines when there were none
      Basically i do not like your way of life but i will use your ways and tools you use as your way of life that i do not want and use them for my way of life ???!!! EUUUUH what type of a law is that ? and who brought it forth ? that means give more rights to some while depriving the other and rubbing his nose in it by oppression and force

    • So allow fisheries to strip the from local indigenous communities? No.

      Also, “The Dept of fisheries also said that the number of traps they are dropping won’t have an effect on lobster conservation. Their *entire fleet* is dropping 350 traps. A *single* commercial ship can drop 400. Federal fisheries licenses say there are 979 lobster licenses in the Area. That’s almost 400,000 traps.”

  7. Make Canadians equal

  8. I like Lobster.

    The supreme court and the federal government need to sort this out as soon as possible, we don’t want to see the dispute getting out of hands. Politicians, this is the time to try to solve the problem.

    This is horrible!! 🙁

  11. the deep strikes again

  12. She actually said “heating up”… they just can’t help but speak in headlines.

  13. Guess that’s what happens when one side has 0 rules

  14. So the “non-indigenous” are demanding equal rights now.

    Nobody see the irony in this?

  15. 😇
    Fight back .. government is out to decimate the Indian culture… going on too long .. it has to stop 😇

  16. And China is fishing out entire ecosystems and no one is saying nothing

  17. More division within Canada. personally I’d prefer to see more proof , either written or video. Don’t like when accusations are thrown into the news feed. Could lead to lawsuits if not reported properly and then no one wins except the lawyers

  18. The problem is that the Supreme Court ruled that the First Nations could make a moderate living, not massive profitable. The Supreme Court also added that such fishing would be subject to federal regulation.

    Jennifer Burke needs to learn and Indigenous issues before conducting an ignorant interview.

    NS has to be returned to its real owners. Renaissance is very close.
