Ottawa may have over spent on fishing licences

As part of the federal government's Aboriginal Fishing Strategy, the feds began a voluntary buy back program in 2000. The program was intended to buy back fishing licences from fishermen and transfer these licences into communal fishing licences for native bands.

As is becoming all too common, the federal government did not implement appropriate accountability measures and may have been over charged for the fishing licences.

To avoid this type of problem again, the Canadian Taxpayers Federation suggests cancelling the Aboriginal Fishing Strategy. Read more about the CTFs recommendations on our website.
