RCMP only charging 3 non-Indigenous fishers for violence ‘speaks volumes’ says chief

Sipekne’katik First Nation Chief Mike Sack says the number of people arrested and charged for violent acts against Mi’kmaw lobster harvesters is “disheartening.”

“I couldn’t believe it when I was told that they actually said that they have bigger cases to worry about and for me a burning van is not bigger than assaulting one of our Mi’kmaq woman,” said Sack.

“That just speaks volumes”
