Minister speaks on Nuu-Chah-Nulth fishing decision

Yesterday’s BC Supreme Court decision to work with First Nations on fishing rights could lead to even further reviews according to one Minister.

Minister of Fisheries, Dominic LeBlanc says that the decision already has him directing reviews of the Salmon Allocation Policy.

He also said via press release that he has already offered additional licenses and quota to the Nuu-Chah-Nulth Nations for groundfish, salmon, and shellfish.

LeBlanc says that this is another step towards Canada’s recognition and implementation of the rights of Indigenous people.

He also says he looks forward to working with First Nations moving forward to further cement the relationship.

LeBlanc has already personally met with the leaders of the five Nuu-Chah-Nulth Nations that led the way to yesterday’s decision.
