Members of Burns Lake Indian Band began their around-the-clock protest two weeks ago demanding transparency.

They’re upset with the chief and council about deals they’re making with energy companies.

On Monday police moved in.

The community now questions why police came in with such show of force.

APTN National News reporter Rob Smith has the story.

  1. Obviously it was a decision, I believe, their Chief & Council made. Otherwise the RCMP has to be invited into a community based on a call to their local detachments. Is this the kind of situation Indian country is going to face when the community protests against their own governments? Probably, since a majority of on reserve police force funding is going to be cut. The more and more I see what Canada is doing to First Nations then more and more I’m starting to believe this is a social engineering project by Canada.

    1. That social engineering is also own as 4th generation warfare, and we are labelled as the terrorists.
