Fishing can definitely rack up some charges! The article discussed in this post explains a situation from earlier this week in which a BC fisherman was fined $20,000 for illegally selling his catch of spot prawns. He caught his prawns under his First Nations Food, Social, and Ceremonial licence, which does not permit the selling of ones catch.

With climate change, industrialization and environmental resource extraction on the rise, it is obvious that our environment will suffer. The boreal forest is the target of these developments, and this calls into question the sustainability and long-term impacts of our reliance on the boreal forest in Canada. A healthy boreal forest is essential to the livelihoods of countless animals, ecosystems, people and our economy.

               The article I chose focuses on a hotly debated issue in many parts of Canada, namely natural resource extraction and the impact on Aboriginal land rights. More specifically, this article chronicled the Waswanipi Cree’s fight to protect one of Québec’s last remaining untouched boreal forests, the Broadback Valley Forest, from forestry. The Waswanipi Cree’s territory is located 730 kilometres north of Montreal, and has already felt a heavy presence from the forestry industry, with 90% of their territory already logged or fragmented.
