Harris questions Liberal response on violence against Mi’Kmaq fishers

Jack Harris, MP St. John's East asked this question in the House of Commons today.

Mr. Speaker, when asked about the grossly inadequate RCMP response to the violence against Mi’Kmaq fishers in Nova Scotia despite ample warning - The Commissioner said, they are quote “managing the issue.”

Most people watching what’s happening would agree with Senator Murray Sinclair who said that answer, quote “flies in the face of the evidence”

The Prime Minister has defended the commissioner.

The Minister for Indigenous Services has been less than supportive, but Mr. Speaker, what does the Minister in charge think?
