Native Women Challenges RCMP’s Authority During Harper’s Visit

By André Faust

Harper arrived in Fredericton with a motorcade of heavily armed RCMP and security personnel to secure a controlled environment that ensured only Harper supporters could attend the event.

Natives were met by resistance from the RCMP who put aside treaty rights to prohibit aboriginals from expressing concerns about Harpers not action on the environment and his insensitive on missing and murdered aboriginal women.

Two native females challenged the RCMP authority in refusing them to get within close proximity of the PMO. The women asserted that according to treaty they were permitted on the property and told the RCMP officer that he better study up on treaty rights.
