I heard a rumor that PEI is now allowing a recreational lobster fishery, any one have a confirmation, or info on this fishery?
If it is before the court now that person waves the privacy right unless the Judge gives such an Order. If it is before the NS Supreme Court it is public knowledge and you would be safe to discuss/devulge the name as it is public knowledge.1. can't name the lawyer - that is up to the person challenging the law - he is funding it himself
2. can't name the person - that is up to them
3. eventually will get the Supreme Court of Canada - testing in the Nova Scotia Supreme Court now
4. white guy - non native - not meti !!
5. big issue for all involved as the commercial fisherman do not want this to happen
I am saying that this sounds a lot like a guy Al I met a few years ago, who had every intention of pursuing the recreational lobster fishery here in NS. He could not pursue it at the time, because of a conflict of interest with his current employment!!!! He said once he retires, he would have his day in court concerning the issue!!!!X,
You are saying your friend "Al" is the "Mystery Man of Meteghan"?? "Al" has been charged with illegally fishing for lobsters and he has entered a plea of Not Guilty?? Keep us informed of the details and his progress!! Regards......
I am going to strongly disagree with your thoughts on this issue!!!!!Here is how I see it, many of the lobstermen I know in area 34( I live here) already want the traps dropped to 300 as they fear the lobsters can't withstand the pressure also if there is less supply in the market the demand and the price goes up so I can't see them giving up 100 traps only to have joe blow set them. I can also see an even bigger paoching and black market prob that could arise. And I don't know if we would all benefit b/c the lobster fishery is the one last thing we got going here in this economy. if the lobstermwn don't make money they don't make boat payments which hurts the local credit union etc, they don't purchase new trucks they don't buy as many groceries they don't buy new boats or make alterations which will end up in shutting down shops which employ alot of ppl. , they don't go to the dentist the hair dresser as often etc you see my point. Their money is what keeps us going they spend so we get a cheque to spend. As much as I'd like to go catch my own feed I think I will be better off buying a few than losing a job and a steady paycheque, I think I would come out farther ahead.
