Court decision favours Metis fishing year-round

Anne Kyle, Leader-Post
Published: Friday, October 19, 2007

The Metis Nation Saskatchewan is calling for the creation of a provincewide agreement that recognizes and respects Metis harvesting rights.

“It is time for the government of Saskatchewan to sit down and honourably negotiate an agreement with the MNS that recognizes and accommodates Metis harvesting rights throughout the province, rather than continuing to charge and prosecute Metis harvesters at great expense to our people and Saskatchewan taxpayers,” Metis Nation Saskatchewan president Robert Doucette told reporters on Thursday. “We call upon the leaders of both the NDP and the Saskatchewan Party to make such a commitment to the Metis people during this election campaign.”
