Mi’kmaw Lobster plant set afire 2 days after massive local organized non-native attack on very facility

Where were you when even @JustinTrudeau said “We are expecting the RCMP & police services to do their jobs & keep people safe”
@RussDiabo @Ruth_HHopkins
Yesterday I called @RCMPNS HQ to urge them to prepare to protect Mi’kmaw people in area, as non-native fishers threatening again

Was told they had “resources” there already & would have detachment call me with more details.

No one called, at all

Called again today
Radio silence still as situation drastically escalating
Concern this will explode exponentially

Nothing on either @RCMPNS or @DFO_MAR feeds
Canada & NS - Radio silence


Police won’t

Do keep contacting

FYI my call 12:35 AST RCMP sent me to “non-emergency” desk. Was told they were aware & had “resources” in area. I asked what resources. Took my number & said local detachment would call to answer this question

Still waiting for call-back 12:55
