You're right. The ability of people, rights holders in NWT, to trap goes beyond something monetary. I did mention that it's not a primary source of income for most people, it's secondary or tertiary. It supplements income in other areas. It's part of an annual cycle of getting people out on the land. But more than supporting from a financial perspective, it supports from a cultural and spiritual perspective people's ability to link to the land, particularly those in small remote communities, so it goes beyond just economics. This is not solely about economics. This is about maintaining a way of life; it's about maintaining a culture. There's a very solid connection. With regard to your comment about banning trapping, that would have a detrimental effect on a great number of NWT residents, not only from an economic perspective, but also from a cultural perspective, from a perspective of maintaining a traditional lifestyle and maintaining essentials of cultural identity.
