After spending his summer popping up in wedding photos wearing a wetsuit, and participating in community parades, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is no longer welcome in Tofino according to Tla-o-qui-aht First Nation leaders.
 
They made the announcement at a recent meeting in Port Alberni with Fisheries and Oceans Canada Regional Director General Rebecca Reid, who they say insulted the Nuu-chah-nulth Chiefs by refusing to negotiate commercial fishing rights, or halt litigation against First Nations court victories.
 
Cliff Atleo says after 7 years of trying to work with DFO on what the courts have directed them to do, Nuu-chah-nulth negotiators have called an end to discussions with the federal government.
 
Leaders say despite speeches promising a new era of reconciliation with First Nations, Trudeau has done little to reverse the Conservative Party's agenda of ignoring Aboriginal rights and title.

The Bulldogs opened up a five game home stand on Wednesday night, and ended up on the wrong end of a 6-3 decision to the Victoria Grizzlies. The Dogs trailed 2-0 after one and 4-1 after two after making it a one-goal game a minute into the second. The Grizzlies opened up a 5-1 lead two minutes into the third, before the Dogs scored twice to make it a two-goal game with four minutes to play only to have the Grizzlies hit the empty net with a minute to play to complete the scoring. Jake Witkowski picked up his first career hat trick to account for all the Bulldog scoring. The Dogs are next in action Saturday night when they host the Vernon Vipers, with the Coquitlam Express in town for a 2pm puck drop on Sunday.
