  • States have come together throughout the past decades in an effort to legalise navigation and trade activity on the seas. The international community have taken account of the traditional behaviour of coastal states towards each other as well as past discussions on the subject. Recently there has been much discussion on the UNCLOS, and the efforts and effects of this major piece of legislation on member and non-member states. Increase in global population and the advancement of technology in fisheries as well as increasing pollution of the seas have resulted in grave depletion of marine resources. State subsidies to the fishing sector have trade and ecological consequences, especially for fisheries that are over-exploited. Growing interest in this biological problem has sparked the need...

  • Let's face it. Manitoba is not Vancouver and the range of fresh foods available here in mid-January is somewhat smaller than on the temperate West Coast. Even during summer, 100 miles from Vancouver puts a consumer in touch with a much wider array of foods than it does in Winnipeg. What about the Manitoba producer targeting local markets, but who lives just outside the 100-mile zone? It is built around several principles for a "just and sustainable food system" in Manitoba. They include adequate incomes for farmers using ecologically sustainable practices, respect for traditional hunting, fishing and trapping practices for First Nations and Metis, a balance between international trade and local consumption, healthy urban and rural relationships, and ensuring availability of affordable n...

  • From stories about traucos, ugly dwarfs who live in the forests, to tales of Invunche, a child stolen at birth who hides in caves and feeds on goat flesh, the hard edge of ancient mythology holds powerful sway here. If those two beauties don't make your hair curl, you can always try your luck with the basilisco, a snake with a cockerel's head. According to legend, just a glimpse of this venomous poultry is all it takes to terrorize an innocent to death. While this island has a horror poster for pretty well every day of the month, you've got to remember it's all the stuff of myth and legend. While there's still a fusion of ancient native and Catholic belief systems in the collective consciousness, not too many Chilotes fear nightfall.

  • two other Attawapiskat residents, Brian Okimaw and Paul Mattinas, set out on foot Jan. 4 on a trek from James Bay to Ottawa. Readers may remember Metatawabin as a speaker for Attawapiskat Chief Theresa Spence during her hunger strike last year. Metatawabin said he was inspired to do the trek by the Cree walkers who completed a three-month walk last March called the Journey of Nishiyuu. They traveled from their community in Quebec to Ottawa. Metatawabin said he wants to raise awareness that a year has gone by since the hunger strike and Idle No More protests and despite assurances from government that movement would be made in key areas for First Nations people, nothing has changed. "A year went by and nothing really happened. There was no follow up or reports or engagement with the gras...

  • Also known as Gull Rapids, Keeyask is one of the northern dams on the Nelson River that Manitoba Hydro hopes to build in the next decade. Unlike Wuskwatim and Conawapa -- two words that tumble easily off the lips of politicians and executives -- Keeyask has remained relatively anonymous. Keeyask will flood a much larger area -- 46 square kilometres -- than Wuskwatim or Conawapa. Flooding will be only a fraction of that caused by large dams built a generation ago, but Victor Spence, Tataskweyak's lead negotiator, says it will still alter his people's hunting, fishing, trapping and traditional ways of life. Most First Nations don't have any economic base at all, no resources," Spence said. "We're looking at Keeyask as a positive economic relationship with Manitoba Hydro. All we want is a...
