Aboriginal fishermen convicted of violating licence

SYDNEY, N.S. — Two fishermen from Waycobah First Nation have now been convicted of a fishery offence after a Supreme Court decision overturned a lower court ruling that imposed a stay in the case.

In a decision released this week, Justice Robin Gogan allowed the Crown appeal, which included the introduction of fresh evidence in the case, and set aside the stay, which resulted in convictions for both accused.
