Sell access to their boats to non-native people to fish out of season

Canadian fishermen get fed up with the Government avoiding any confrontation and torch a Chinese lobster pound whose sole purpose is to purchase and process out of season and undersize/illegal lobster.

Let's add up all the square footage of all the boat holds of the Canadian lobster boats and the square footage of all the First Nations' lobster boats and see who is really raping Mother Ocean. If there weren't 10,000+ traps during the one season, would 150 traps during the off season even be a concern?

Canada is afloat in propaganda that keeps circling the bowl. Canadians they insist everyone is treated equal when everyone knows the English-Canadians and French-Canadians are the most citizen plus of all citizens as they get their traditional laws applied to themselves. Third most protected culture? Hutterites and their communes. Canadian equality is a myth.

First Nation nations and cultures were born on these lands. We are comparable to the English in England, it Canadians that are comparable to the Polish in England, which is why their nation does not have Indigenous rights. Canadian should get upset with First Nations for how their government treats them. First Nations have nothing to do with that.

Most First Nations are governed by the Canadian law - the Indian Act. The governance system applied to First Nations is tri-level with democracy only going up to the "mayor" level. The top two level are held by Canadians who have no need to listen to the people they govern. This is why a Supreme Court decision can go 20 years without being negotiated. First Nations are governed by a Canadian-controlled system which looks after Canadian interests first.

This is farking disgusting.  I've been watching with horror since this shiat show started.  It's 250 traps (compared to over a million by white fishermen in season). University bio departments have weighed in and said the Mi'kmaq fishing does not threaten the commercial fishery or the lobster spawn.  This is nothing but blatant racism wrapped up in corporate interests.  Is it wrong that I'd love to see a vigilante protection mob of not arsehole NS gun owners to show up and protect the treaty rights of the Mi'kmaq since the damned cops won't?

This has been going on for days and the RCMP literally stood by as people attacked the first nation tribe.

Before the place burned down the filtration system was sabotaged, a van was torched.  At one point over 200 vehicles showed up and there was a standoff....  only because RCMP was there.  But when all those cars left, so did the RCMP and then it mysteriously went up in flames.

Also those other fisherman stole all the lobster from one of the hauls.

They didn't release them back into the wild...

So if it was REALLY about off-season fishing and depleting sticks you'd think they'd do that.

Also, if it was about that...  whats with all the racist insults?

This is purely racist shiatbags being racist shiatbags.

It hardens back to Jim crow era when white people would firebox black businesses with a similar argument of hurting their businesses.

It's pure bullshiat.  And as per usual the RCMP has kept up their amazing record of "defending" the indigenous population.

Treaties some times have inconvenient bits in them.
Sometimes one party has rights the other doesn't.
I see that sort of thing all the time out here, meti, cree, etc exercising their treaty rights. White folks get angry because they're not following the same set of rules.
The place to deal with that is at a negotiation table if it's really that bad (people are sorta being babies about it here at least but good swear killing a deer out of white person season was an afront to God)

We should abide by treaties that we've agreed to even if they suck. Pull out and renegotiate if we gotta, or what have you, but violence is dumb, and should be aimed at feckless politicians and not the first nations peeps anyway.

It is what it is, torching shiat doesn't really color the folks in a good light

Wolf892: chawco: trialpha: The strange thing is people get upset whenever suggesting abolishing the reserve system. It's clearly a major part of the problem.

This i kinda agree with, but also, what does abolish it mean? Are the natives scattering to the 4 winds and being assimilated? And those incentives in place that keep the reserve system in place are a part of their lives are not so easy to give up.

I'm  not disagreeing with you, I'm just saying, its a complicated issue. Which is not an excuse to avoid doing with it.

Change is painful but necessary.

Get rid of the reserves. Assimilate into the rest of Canada.


The whole concept of First Nations "assimilating" into the "rest of Canada" is really disturbing. That's how we got the residential schools. Why should they be the ones to assimilate when it is the rest of Canada who is on their land? Taking away the reserves would be taking away the last shreds of any acknowledgment other than lip service that the land in Canada is actually theirs.

Well if the second us true, then the first must be false. All people do not have to abide by the seasonal rules. There are exceptions. I mean, for so.eone who claims to be a data geek I am a bit surprised this logic escapes you. In fact, I am not sure what poi t you could possible be trying to make except the things you claim to not be doing in your second post. The only reason I can think for your OP is to justify the actions of fishermen who are attacking the natives.

Am I mising.something?

The fishermen attacking the natives are pieces of shiat...but the ecosystem doesn't care about politics. Fishing out of season has a huge impact on the sustainability of the stock. The Canadian government could remedy this in so many other ways, such as native only fishing periods during open season, grants to purchase permits and better equipment for native fishermen, or guaranteed quota shares for the natives.
Chinese processors are taking advantage of the natives to utilize an old treaty to have them fish during the spawn, which threatens sustainability and depresses dock prices for all the working class fishermen, both native and white.

ok sure, fishnet out of season may have a higher impact but

1) attacking the natives over these points both illegal and basically about racism directed towards a.marginalized population that the police won't protect
2) the impact of the number of native lobster fiahers is 0.1% of any of the big commercial operations


This whe situation is racist as fark.


I agree that the violence against the native fishermen is vile and abhorrent...there is no excuse, and the white fishermen that are doing it are directing their anger at another marginalized group who are also trying to make a living, so it goes as a sage once wrote. It appears that the real moneyed interests in the seafood industry (the processors and buyers) are taking full advantage, and the government isnt stepping in to find a solution that both parties can live with. Instead their police are standing back and letting the madness ensue, while the national leadership condemns the violence, and showers empty platitudes towards the natives. The progressive parties are guilty of this the world over...spineless against the moneyed interests, but voice hollow concern towards the disenfranchised (while conservatives are happy to allow and enable the pillage, while denigrating the pillaged)
As far as the catch statistics go, I'd assume these are stats from the normal in season fishery...where the native fleet in the past has had low effort/participation. I'd assume this new fishery has a greater fleet presence, as the processors wouldn't even bother to spend the capital for a low amount of catch in the traditional off season. It's likely that a much larger fleet is exploiting this off season opportunity to make large hauls...less fleet equals exponentially better catch. The article claims that non native boats are participating, you can do this by having a native permit holder on board.
The natives deserve a piece of the pie, but going about it in this way just damages the fishery as whole and brings bad blood between their fellow working class peers...and non native,outside influences are using this to exploit the resource for a lower price, endangering and devaluing the fishery for all risking the waves to live.

How damaging are 150 traps during the off season?


The risk is that, if the natives go out during the regular season with everybody else, the white NS fishermen will steal and wreck their traps, steal their catches, or maybe even wreck their boats. NS fishermen are little better than the mafia. This is their turf and they won't share it with anybody.

There's a big problem that affects all of the lobster fishermen, white and native alike: the dominant market position of the companies that purchase lobster and thus can set the market. Naturally, the white fisherman blame the problem on the few native fisherman who exercise their treaty rights.

Pretty ashamed of the RCMP and the non-native fishermen.

The non-native fishermen barely catch any compared to the big industry types.

It's such a controlled market.  You can't even catch one for yourself (unlike out west in BC).

A real racket.

Yeah, all the bad shiat that black people get in the US? In Canada it gets directed to natives.

It's interesting that the RCMP doesn't seem to think race riots and looting involving hundreds of people is a matter of concern. I guess we know what their priorities are.

This is a treaty dispute. Take them to court if you feel you have a grievance. Friggin assholes.

Or, turn your gaze to Clearwater. They're a real villian in this story.
