Its irrelevant if they go or not. It really is. Truth be told Canada did sign a binding UN agreement that started this whole Truth and reconciliation movement. Quotas will still swing their way and it will be business as usual. Mark my words. The Minister ( if voted out ) will most likely find a well paid job in the private sector and laugh all the way to the bank. He wont lose an ounce of sleep at night. By no means am I a supporter. I am simply stating what will be the truth.

The thing about being an elected politician (AKA puppet) is that no matter what you do someone hates you, and if you are really doing your job right everyone hates you.  Believe me, the FN hate the politicians just as much if not more then you do.  If you need a job Nog, run for office and make the changes you want.

As if keeping Pierre's Idiot Child and his merry band of complete Incompetents in power will result in ANYTHING positive for fisheries resources and those who rely on them...   ::)

Ignore politics to your peril.   ;)

No fan of Trudeau et al.

But I did note in the partisan ad you posted that there was no mention of any proposed solutions, alternatives, options, etc, just 'JT is a dork vote for me instead'...

Long Liner Seafood at Granville Island still selling fresh "Fraser River Chinook" at $50 per pound, as of Sat Jun 22/2019. Same price tag in the fish case as in the May 11/2019 post earlier in this thread. Did anyone better educated on commercial fisheries than me ever figure out how they're legally buying and selling them?
166 Chinook so far  ::) . Just a guess but , that would be over a ton of chinook . Lets say an average 15 lb. fish . @ $50 Per. pound .
$124,000 bucks for some lucky retailer . Or would part of those proceeds go to some kind of Salmon foundation of sorts ? .

They were selling fillets for $50/lb. If the fish averaged 15 lbs then you'd get around 8lbs of fillets from each. If Long Liner received and sold all 166 fish then they'd wind up with around 1328 lbs of fillets. 1328 lbs of fillets at $50/lb makes for a gross of $66 400. The net income (har har) on those sales would be $66 400 minus the price paid for the fish.

Still a nice profit I'd imagine, but nowhere near 6 figures.
