Supreme Court says Lax Kwalaams have no Aboriginal right to commercial fishery

first_imgAPTN National NewsOTTAWA–The Supreme Court of Canada has ruled against a British Columbia First Nation seeking to affirm an Aboriginal right to harvest fish, seaweed and shellfish from their traditional territory.The high court ruled that the Lax Kw’alaams, a First Nation in the Prince Rupert region of B.C., could not claim an Aboriginal right to a commercial fishery because they did not engage in wide-spread trade before contact.The court found that the Lax Kw’alaams were not a “trading people” that only engaged in the trade of eulachon fish oil.“Such sporadic trade as took place in other fish products was peripheral to the pre-contact society and did not define what made pre-contact society what it was,” the court ruled. “The attempt to build a modern commercial fishery on the narrow support of a limited ancestral trade…lacks sufficient continuity and proportionality…the claim in this case to a general commercial fishery would create a right qualitatively and quantitatively different from the pre-contact trade in eulachon grease.”The Supreme Court decision upheld previous lower court rulings in B.C. that the Lax Kw’alaams had appealed.The Lax Kw’alaams argued that under the 1999 Marshall decision, they had a right to a commercial fishery to support their community.last_img read more

Convoys in support of oil industry continue in Alberta and Saskatchewan

first_imgMEDICINE HAT, A.B. – Convoys of trucks rolled slowly through Alberta and Saskatchewan on Saturday as demonstrations in support of Canada’s ailing oil and gas sector continue.Police in Medicine Hat, Alta., estimate that 650 vehicles took part in a convoy that began on the Trans-Canada Highway east of the city and continued west to weigh scales before turning around and dispersing.A similar event in Estevan, Sask., brought around 450 trucks, according to a police estimate. HUGE truck convoys in ALBERTA, SASK, & MANITOBA TODAY in support of pipelines and Canadian Oil & Gas! Some of the cities include Brooks, Medicine Hat, Bonnyville, Edson, Estevan, Yorkton. Comment below if we missed a city and SHARE to get the message out! pic.twitter.com/DUJogMOz5k— EnergyNow (@EnergyNow_News) December 22, 2018A few of the signs also expressed opposition to the United Nations.Jay Riedel, an organizer of the Estevan convoy, said concern over Canada signing the United Nations migration pact is part of the protest, noting he believed the pact surrenders Canada’s immigration policy to outside powers.“We definitely need immigrants coming into Canada but we also need to get jobs going for us and them,” Riedel said. Truck convoys began last weekend in Alberta. One event on Wednesday brought more than a thousand vehicles to Nisku, south of Edmonton.Jerry Sabine, an organizer of the convoy in Medicine Hat, says trucks were driving slowly to show people “the frustration of how slow the oilfields are.”Saskatchewan Premier Scott Moe tweeted his support for the event in Estevan, saying people across Western Canada are fed up with what he called the Trudeau government’s indifference toward the energy sector.“What a strong message sent today from the truck rally in Estevan,” Moe said. “Your SK government stands with you in support of this critical industry.”Other recent rallies, including a large one in Calgary on Monday, have targeted federal actions that critics say will make building pipelines more difficult. They include Bill C-69 to revamp the National Energy Board and Bill C-48 which would ban oil tanker traffic on British Columbia’s northern coast.Supporters of Saturday’s convoys lined the streets in both cities. Most of the signs they held had messages calling for pipeline construction, an end to carbon taxes and the defeat of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.center_img “If we don’t have jobs for these people to have, then our whole social system is going to fail.”Police in Medicine Hat and Estevan commended the conduct of the convoy drivers.“Appreciate the public’s patience during the truck convoy protest. Also appreciate the professionalism of those involved,” said a tweet from the Estevan police that was attributed to Chief Paul Ladouceur.More convoys are planned, including one that will travel to Ottawa in February. Sabine said some of the trucks involved in the Medicine Hat convoy travelled from across the province to support the event.“We just put the word out a couple, three days ago, and it really snowballed on us,” Sabine said.last_img read more

Investigation into relations between a teacher and student

first_img Related Items: Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, TCI, July 4, 2016 – Two people being in love is no crime, but when one of those two people is an adult and the other is a child – a reported teacher and a student, then it is a major crime and the police have to get involved.  It is the situation right now in the Turks and Caicos where police are working on this very delicate case where a former student of a government primary school in Provo is reportedly now the love interest and perhaps even lover of a woman who was her teacher.  The situation is especially shocking as we are speaking about a female teacher and a female student, the student is now in high school.  Police would offer up no details in the investigation, but it is confirmed.last_img read more
