M’CHIGEENG—Anishinabek Grand Council Chief Glen Hare was fired up this past Monday, after reading an article in the November 30 edition of The Recorder on the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry (MNRF) calling for public input into having a hunting season for cormorants in the province of Ontario, something he pointed out First Nations had lobbied for about 20-25 years ago and received no positive response from the province at the time.

“It is pretty sad and incredible to hear that now, after about 25 years since we lobbied for a cull on cormorants, that the province is looking for public input into having a hunting season for them,” said Grand Council Chief Hare. “It was in the early 1990s that cormorants had first come here; the ministry had brought these birds over here and it was at that time we called for a cull of cormorants or all our lakes would be without fish. We made a real stink about all this at the time and absolutely no action was taken at the time.”
