    Lobster is soooooo GROSS who would fight for it. NOW fighting over milk chocolate would make sense.

  2. Monopoly taught you that the winners owned property

    The pandemic(Covid-19) showed you that the winners owned stocks.

    The tax laws tells you that the business owners pay less than employees

    At some point, you need to take the lessons leraned and apply them to your life.

    Are you a complete beginner to investing and have no idea where to begin?

  4. Cheif Sack is speaking truth. The government has never followed through with treaties.

    I must admit that i am lacking some knowledge and i would like to ask a question.
    Are they fishing during breeding season?
    Is a moderate livelyhood in the treaties or is that something that they are just adding now?

    • Not just adding it now it’s always been in our treaty to hunt and fish. Unseeded territory (1752)

    • Not just adding it now…Its always been in our Treaty to Hunt and Fish…We did not give up our land,we are all on unceeded territory

      @Dawn Paul ok i understand hunting and fishing has always been in your treaty but has the term moderate livelyhood always been in the treaty?
      From what is being reported that seems to be a recent addition by the Canadian supreme court, and if it is a recent addition than I would have to say that treaties are negotiable.
      Is the fishing going on during breeding season?

  6. The definition of “subsistance living” obviously needs to be better defined by DFO. That being said, the commercial fishers have a stake in the process and have to be accounted for so that the industry is sustainable and equitable for all concerned.

  7. Enough.
