    First Nations food, social and ceremonial fisheries: these fisheries, which have a constitutionally protected priority, will not commence until July 15 – concurrent with the opening of the recreational retention fishery.
    I think that's just wishful on the department of fisheries part.

    After NINETY-FOUR DFO sanctioned FN openings in the Fraser, I would say you are right.

    Morning Times Colonist reports ‘missing orcas may have been dining off California where Chinook numbers are excelent,experiencing some of the best numbers in decades....duh, wonder would that be anything to do with the massive salmon enhancement program they initiated which has paid off in spades...meanwhile Canada did nothing claiming they were ‘going on a different route ‘..whales aren’t stupid...they know where the fish are..

    Yup.
    I couldn't understand why they hadn't changed their menu from salmon to seal?
    Them being down in Cali explains a lot!
    As far as Canada and it's "Enhancement Projects", or rather "Lack of"!!
    Well, that's no different than our Wildlife Enhancement we see here in BC!
    Out to lunch as well!!
    And just like the Salmon Sportsman getting screwed over, so do us hunters.
    Seems to be a "Common Theme"!! (hope everyone is starting to see it)

    Thumbs down Re: Draconian Fisheries Closures

    This government has totally lost it's mind:

    Today, the DFO held a press briefing to announce what they billed as “Additional Fisheries Management Measures for Fraser River Chinook stocks, following the recent landslide near Big Bar, north of Lillooet, BC.”

    For those sport fishermen planning on fishing the areas opening for retention starting July 15, the announcement boils down to one thing, and one thing only: non-retention of Chinook over 80 cm both wild and hatchery.

    Re: Draconian Fisheries Closures

    from the minister "He noted the recreational fishery’s closure was largely tied to First Nations’ Constitutional rights: if the Strait were opened to a recreational fishery, then the very parts of the Fraser where stocks are hanging by a thread would be opened to First Nations to harvest fish." What...? you mean that if the sport fishermen were fishing US bound hatchery Fish in the ocean then the FN fishers would have fished the endangered fraser River stocks in the Fraser River purely out of spite....what in sam hill.........of course this thinking will label me a racist but it shows that common sense is not so common anymore.....

    Re: Draconian Fisheries Closures

    Yup, guess that is what happens when we let political officials manage wildlife of all sorts.
    They make all sorts of promises and deals that in the end makes it impossible to do the right thing anymore.
    Instead of taking control of the issue as to why we lack fish stocks, such as pump money into hatcheries and enhancement projects.
    We just let them get away with further restrictions on the folks they can get away with it on.
    Totally lost sight of the "big picture" and what is best for everyone.
    Politics filled with lawyers and law.
    Should we be surprised????

    “First Nations food, social, ceremonial, fisheries already in place below the landslide will not be affected,” Thomson says.

    "We fully support the call from the Fraser Salmon Management Council that all recreational and commercial fisheries fishing Fraser River salmon stocks immediately stop and any contemplated recreational and commercial fishery, including catch and release, not take place until after it is determined that all salmon have safe access around the slide area and that any such openings only be considered after conservation and First Nations priority needs are met,” says Grand Chief Stewart Phillip in a release.

    The Agenda is quite clear here...

    .................................................

    “Gerald Michel is lands and resources co-ordinator with the Xwisten Indian Band, located downriver from the slide.

    His community, already worried about declining salmon stocks, curtailed fishing last week after learning of the slide, Mr. Michel said. The slide has added to worries about the impacts of fish farming on wild stocks,” he said.

    Interesting. Even the FN's are clear that Wilkinson was LYING when he said no such fisheries had or were taking place...
