As Canada struggles to come to terms with reconciliation, court cases are helping define what Indigenous rights and title mean in day-to-day life. If the federal government is serious about its commitment to a new and respectful relationship with Indigenous peoples, it should set the tone through policies that address historic injustices, such as in commercial fishing practices.

An ugly thread of misspent taxpayer dollars, environmental destruction and conflict-of-interest -- backed by a government beholden to the mining industry -- runs along the recently completed Northwest Transmission Line, charges acclaimed explorer and scholar Wade Davis.
*** Before you watch this video, rest assured the bird is OK. Shaken, but OK. *** A pair of Pennsylvania ice fishermen got the surprise of their lives when they thought they'd snagged a big fish, but...
Two years ago, a great man died at the very impressive age of 97 (and a half). He is remembered and missed for the love, strength and support that he gave his family and friends, for the many great contributions to the Canadian mining industry during his long life, and also for his service in the Royal Canadian Navy during World War II.

Improving the way we fish and grow seafood is critical to the survival of some of our planet's most threatened marine and freshwater species and environments. But a national sustainable seafood day is also a critical reminder that even through our everyday choices in what food we buy, we can have a profound impact on the future of life on our planet. And nowhere is that more true than at our fish counters.
In addition to the special events and interactive exhibits at most major tourist attractions, here is a list of virtually free things to do around the GTA, most of which will give you an opportunity to try something new or different by virtue of the favourable price tag.
If you are looking for a way to truly connect to the food culture of Jamaica then I have the culinary adventure for you! It turns out that the white-knuckle, hair-raising journey over the mountains from Montego Bay to Saint Elizabeth Parish, the breadbasket of Jamaica, is worth every minute.
Just off the coast of West Cork, Ireland lays tranquil Heir Island. This island is the perfect retreat for anyone looking to get away, feel inspired, sail, paint and cook. Only 2.5km long, Heir Island is located in Roaringwater Bay and home to 24 residents.
The health of fish is undoubted. A great source of lean protein, omega fatty acids and low in fat. But the problem today is that our fish supply is contaminated with mercury and PCB's and the oceans are being overfished. The following fish have been put into three groups. Those to avoid, those that are good to consume and those that can be eaten on an infrequent basis.
Cheticamp, at the southwestern entrance of the national park, is the most eye-catching community on the Cabot Trail because the colourful houses, many of them painted in the blue, red and white symbols of the Acadian people, stand out and invite you to stop.
On good days, fish seem like they are conjured instead of caught. But here's the truth: fly fishing -- no matter how pretty Brad Pitt makes it look -- is about people pestering animals for their own pleasure. Even though I know this fact and feel its weight every time I angle, I still can't go a day without thinking about fishing.
Even with David Black's proposal for an oil refinery on a hill 25 kilometres north of Kitimat, residents here know that the Enbridge Northern Gateway debate has gone on for years and will go on for many years to come. The hottest issue in Kitimat this summer is water, not oil. For us, this summer can be summed up by saying: "Water, water everywhere, but you can't get there from here."
As environmentalists worldwide celebrate the beauty of Douglas Channel, and decry the dangers that tanker traffic could pose to the channel, many people in Kitimat are cut off from the waterfront.
I confess: I have been wrapped up in a bit of a love affair. I have always enjoyed potatoes, but after my recent experience with our local potato festival, my love for that starchy tuber has been renewed. I don't know if it was the taste-testing on opening night or the experiences surrounding the festivities that further sparked my fever. All I know is this: from blossom to table, potatoes on P.E.I. rule the roost.
In spite of our marital problems, I try not to bash my husband. But after two consecutive long weekends of boozing, golfing and fishing, and coming home at 4:30 a.m. reeking of sausages and whores, I think he's fair game. You see, I found some pretty incriminating photos on his camera.
Fatigue, unsafe work practices and a lack of training continue to put fishermen at risk despite hundreds of safety investigations and subsequent recommendations, the Transportation Safety Board said T...
Government scientists have now provided data on the health of wild Atlantic salmon that agrees with anecdotal information from anglers who raved about the great 2011 fishing season. Experts have confirmed that many salmon populations met, or exceeded their minimum conservation requirements in 2011.

Clearly I didn't have a connection to the big fish in the way I'd had when fishing the mountain streams. Rod, line and fly as an extension of my arm gave me a connection to the fish's world in a way I couldn't experience by fishing long line from a river bank in deep, dark water via a rod holder.

HALIFAX - Several East Coast fish stocks that collapsed in the early 1990s are showing the first signs of recovery, according to new research that suggests whole ecosystems can rebound.Scientists at the Bedford Institute of Oceanography, a federal government research centre in Halifax, released a study Wednesday that says cod, haddock and other once dominant groundfish stocks are making a comeback on the eastern Scotian Shelf.
