The Treasure Trove Debate
If you find treasure on land, the rules are pretty clear; hand it all over to the provincial government.
But, if you find treasure under the ocean - at least in Nova Scotian waters - it's a whole other can of worms.
Nova Scotia is the only province with a Treasure Trove Act, orginally written to deal with prospectors hoping to find treasure on Oak Island.
As reporter Stephen Puddicombe tells us, the provincial government is considering whether to change the Act....so he spoke with people for and against the legislation.
