Lobster protests: Nova Scotia RCMP arrest two at wharf in Weymouth

RCMP say two people were arrested Friday and accused of assault at a wharf in western Nova Scotia, where there were reports of ugly confrontations over a First Nation’s commercial lobster fishing operation. Some non-Indigenous fishermen say they believe the Indigenous business is illegal because the regular fishing season is now closed, but the Sipekne’katik First Nation says their people have a treaty right to fish at any time. The Mounties say no one was injured at the wharf in Weymouth, and the two suspects were arrested and escorted from the scene. >click to read< 15:16
