    Thumbs down Skeena Shut Down

    Thirty-eight Gitxsan Hereditary Chiefs have renewed a ban on recreational salmon fishing in their traditional territory.

    “All persons holding recreational fishing permits or fish-guiding licenses are no longer allowed to trespass in Gitxsan territory. People need to know that when they fish here, they are trespassing in controlled territory,” says Brian Williams, Chair of Gigeenix, in a press release.

    Like last year, the Hereditary Chiefs say anyone found fishing salmon in their territory will be asked to stop. They claim up to 90 per cent of its members have abstained from harvesting salmon until the numbers return.

    Meanwhile an advisory committee, referred to as a Crisis Team by the chiefs, has been meeting with federal and provincial officials to discuss public access to the territory in 2020. They say the ban marks the beginning of an “ambitious journey” to collaborate with the government to create a process where all recreational fishers must have permission from individual chiefs to fish their rivers.

    "Their river".......As much as I like BC I will be encouraging my kids to get out as soon as they are old enough. What our government has created is going to ruin the most resource rich and outdoor friendly province in our country.....This is such a sad state of affairs. I am disgusted that our government allows themselves to be pushed around, and the majority in our province continually suffers.

    Guys the NDP has fully bought into the UNDRIP, EVERY SINGLE POLICY that the NDP is making is using the UNDRIP as a framework. Expect things to get crazy between now and the next election.

    You know, if everyone would just move out of BC there would be no tax base to finance this bullshit and no money to hand to the entitled greedy FNs.

    I'm going to fish and hunt where I want, confront me if you so wish but you better hope you possess a RCMP or CO badge or things aren't going to be pretty.

    My guess is they would have more support if 100% of their members have abstained from harvesting salmon until their numbers recover. Claiming to be implementing this policy for the betterment of salmon numbers while still allowing 10% of their members to fish for salmon in spite of knowing chinook numbers are tanking on the mighty Skeena? They lose all credibility. Its outrageous
