Default Toronto fish store stops buying lobster from N.S. fishers in wake of rights dispute

Toronto fish store stops buying lobster from N.S. fishers in wake of rights dispute

Oct 24, 2020

A Toronto fish store with four locations in the city has stopped buying lobster from Nova Scotia commercial fishers as a show of support for Indigenous fishing rights.

Hooked Inc., which describes itself as "Toronto's knowledgeable fish store," took the stand this week in support of the Mi'kmaw people. Lobster harvested by N.S. commercial fishers used to be a primary source of fresh lobster for the store.

Dan Donovan, co-owner of Hooked, said he was not surprised by the dispute but he is shocked at the violence and disappointed. He runs stores in Kensington Market, Leslieville, South Kingsway and on the Danforth.

Donovan said the racism must stop, the violence must end and the federal government must ensure the safety of the Mi'kmaw people.
