POLICE ON WATER BRING OUT QUESTIONS

The recent sighting of outside police agencies… including The RCMP and the SQ within Akwesasne territorial waters has led to the Mohawk Council of Akwesasne receiving several complaints. Now that the border has closed and many people are not travelling, a lot of them have taken to the water in their leisure time. In particular, the RCMP have stopped and questioned people for no reason. They say it is concerning, because they have a police force of their own fully capable of policing the community waters.
