Is it over hunting that is destroying the Caribou herd or Wolves? or something that is unknown such as a sickness, or something els doing it ?

I have no problem with the Innu hunting as much as they want, no limitations, in a "traditional hunt." In other words: No guns. No factory made weapons. No motorized vechiles in the hunt. No store bought tools to butcher. No freezers or fridges. No electricity to cook the meat. No glass plates or metal dinnerware. In other words: If you want to hunt like the rest of us, you obey the rules like the rest or us.

Why don't you just wipe us off the face of the earth then your government and you will be happy. We didn't want this, when the first white man met with the first INDIAN when he pulled in with his boat and said Hello. The INDIAN replied right away kanata, which means don't go there and he misunderstood. OH! This is Canada my land now. Your Government does not say nor blame themselves when they emitted 3000 licences for recreational hunting, plus the NFLD/LAB residents and those who had the licences to harvest caribou. Do the math, we kill 200 - 350 caribou a year which we eat. This is our diet. So talk to your Government first about the facts i gave you and don't be to quick to judge. Happy Huntings.

HEHEHEHEHEE; HAHAHAHAHAHA. no, no , no....that's been looked after; they've all been prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law; that's what then Ministers of the Clown Dunderdale and Johnston said when the great Quebec Innu hunters, stewards of the environment, slaughtered hundreds of the herd. an update on that file please.

Just more government BS-BS-BS from MHA's that are looking for their 5 minutes of fame. The Indians slaughtered Caribou before as the Game Enforcement Officials took pictures and then did nothing to enforce the laws. Two years in a row they did not have the fortitude to do anything - why even go up there. Now we are suppose to think this is different ? Why not just say that there is a 5 year ban on hunting Caribou for everyone except the Quebec Indians or whatever you are suppose to call them at this specific time in "political correctness" history. Push too hard and one may go on a hunger strike and demand to see the Prime Minister. The NL Innu seem responsible at this time but will also hunt if they feel like it as it is their tradition - except they now use high powered snowmobiles, rifles, gps and sat. telephones. Bitter - you bet as we all own this land and obey the laws.

And the Innu will flaunt it just like last year and the government will do shag-all to the lawbreakers. Can't offend our "first nations" my dear.

.... and who's going to stop the herd from being decimated during the period of the year it spends in Quebec?

The government can make all the laws they like but if they're not going to be enforced, they are useless. A ban is a ban but, if past behaviour is any indication, the hunters will continue with their infractions and ignore any law or ban that prohibits them from taking these animals. These hunters are well-aware of the law and the fact they are breaking it; they simply don't care for anyone telling them what they can and cannot do with what they perceive is their birthright. I hope the govenment has included that in their calculations. This might get ugly.
