Ottawa, Mi’kmaq community on collision course over plan for second lobster season – CTV News
April 22, 2021
HALIFAX — Ottawa and a small Mi’kmaq community appear to be headed toward renewed tensions on the waters off southwest Nova Scotia as the First Nation plans another self-regulated lobster season.
The federal fisheries minister said Thursday that enforcement officers will be in place in St. Marys Bay to “uphold the Fisheries Act” if Sipekne’katik fishers harvest lobster beginning on June 1.
Bernadette Jordan’s comment came shortly before Chief Mike Sack held a news conference to say his band will operate a five-month season that will occur outside of the commercial season.
