Members of Cold Lake FN claim mistreatment by RCMP

Some members of the Cold Lake First Nation say they distrust the RCMP.

The group listed a number of complaints it said was behind its strong feelings.

About eight people who met with APTN News revealed they felt intimidated and harassed. And would hesitate to call for help – even during an emergency.

The force said the Mounties are just doing their jobs. It also said complaints should be directed to the detachment commander or via a complaint page online.
