    Stolen land, and now more stolen rights. Shame on the government for this poor decision.

    • Let them have your house Randomview!!! Hypocrite. They lost the war. Move on.

      We didn’t steal anything, you don’t write a contract with someone before you steal their t.v., you are trying to re-write history.

    • What about Mexico, USA, Hawaii, Fuji, Australia, Brazil, Chile, all of South America, New Zealand, England, Italy and every other country in the world that was conquered ??? Go pick on them.

      No land was “stolen”

  4. We don’t want what happened to the cod to happen to the lobster.

  5. Until the indians start living up to the guidelines in the treaty that THEY signed.. no fishing. They need to define what they expect as the “moderate livelihood” they agreed too and also need to agree to the rules and regulations put in place to protect the lobster stocks. Until they meet those requirements they stay on shore.

      Really?? How did you figure that? 🤔
      Oh I get it! 😏 it’s subtle racism! Lmao 🤣please don’t be that ignorant. Lol

  14. Everyone is equal. No special rights for anyone. If the season is open, its open for everyone. If its closed, its closed for everyone.

      It’s not a special right. It’s part of the treaties. Lol

    • @Pixie Madness I don’t care whether its in a treaty or not. That’s irrelevant. If FN has a right no one else has, that’s a special right.
      I will fight tooth and nail to be just as equal as anyone else in Canada. Tell me I’m not worth it.

    wonder what the creator thinks about you glorifying yourselves , and taking more than you need . Guess we will find out .

  16. We should be equal and fair to everyone. Everyone in Canada should be allow to catch lobster anytime at the same quota. I hope the gov and do the right thing and do not discreminate.
