  • Description

    The United States and Canada imposed a ban on commercial fishing in each other's territorial waters on Sunday (4 June). The American ban also includes fishing for sport -- and covers the popular angling resorts of the Great Lakes. The disagreement arose after the breakdown of talks on territorial and fishing rights, and the ban is expected to last for at least two weeks, when talks will resume. Bob Allison of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation visited Yarmouth, Nova Scotia to talk to local fishermen and Jim Ruddle of the National Broadcasting Company Incorporated went with a United States coast guard launch patrolling Lake Erie.
