Nowadays, we don't need to go fishing to feed ourselves

«De nos jours, on a plus besoin de pecher pour se nourrir. »

That's according to the director of a community centre based in Montreal, as quoted in the 1 September issue of L'Actualite. The news item draws attention the enduring popularity of angling in the Belle Province, and highlights the involvement of second-generation immigrant youth who practice cath-and-release.

In contrast, social worker Jake Kuiken reports on the shock of learning that a lone mother in Calgary had resorted to fishing in the Bow River to feed herself and her family.
