First Nation hosts meeting to discuss fishery woes

The Sandy Bay Ojibway First Nation of Manitoba hosted a meeting of over 500 fishermen to discuss the state of the province's island fishery.

Chief Irvin McIvor said the fishery is "on the brink of non-existence." He said fishermen are blaming a government-charted company for ruining the market.

The meeting resulted in the creation of a group to lobby the government on fishery issues.
