Liberal Caucus Cautions Decision to Shut Down Elver Fishery

(Source: Liberal) – The federal Fisheries minister’s decision to not open the elver fishery for the 2024 season will only lead to more illegal activity and violence. “This decision punishes legal license holders and will do nothing to stop the illegal harvesting of elvers in our waterways,” said Opposition Leader Zach Churchill. “We’re concerned this move will escalate tensions and lead to more illegal activity and increased violence in the region.”
