RCMP Under Fire For Allowing Lobster Fishermen to ‘Terrorize’ Mi’kmaq Community

First Nations Chief is criticizing Nova Scotia RCMP following two incidents where non-Indigenous commercial fishermen mobbed and destroyed property, including burning a vehicle and seizing catch, at two lobster facilities in the province Tuesday. 

The vandalism, partially captured in social media videos, is part of an ongoing attempt by commercial fishermen to shut down the Sipekne'katik First Nation’s recently launched lobster fishery outside of the commercial fishing season.
