La Couronne cherche-t-elle à nous faire la guerre? (2002 | 1 h 36 min), by Alanis Obomsawin

In the summer of 2000, federal fishery officers appeared to wage war on the Mi’gmaq fishermen of Burnt Church, New Brunswick. Why would officials of the Canadian government attack citizens for exercising rights that had been affirmed by the highest court in the land? Alanis Obomsawin casts her nets into history to provide a context for the events on Miramichi Bay.

Film presented in French.
