Marc Miller says Indigenous communities need "space" after violent N.S. fishery incidents

After a work van was set on fire and a catch of lobster was destroyed when a crowd of commercial fishermen allegedly vandalized two fishing compounds in southwestern Nova Scotia on Tuesday, one of the latest incidents between Mi’kmaw fisherman and non-Indigenous fishermen, Canadian Indigenous Services Minister Marc Miller was asked Thursday about the RCMP’s response.

Miller called the incident “alarming” and that “space needs to be given for negotiations to be had under very difficult circumstances” with Chief Michael Sack of Sipekne’katik First Nation and “his people.”

Sipekne’katik First Nation Chief Michael Sack on Thursday blasted the RCMP response to calls after angry mobs damaged two facilities that handle lobster catches from Mi’kmaw fishers on Tuesday.
Sack said in one case, he had been told RCMP officers were the ones that “kicked the door-in.”

    Cant the government just buy a couple licenses from the established local market, designate them to the band for commercial use within a regulated framework? And then allow natives to fish small amounts for subsistence not resale?

    Maybe Im wrong but this Marc guy seems way out of character to be the Minister here in this situation. What relevant experience does he have?

    What they need is a government with a backbone to step up and support them.

    The Secret of All Secret Societies

    The Third Eye. The Pyramids.

    The Third Eye = Telepaths, psychics. Nearly half of the global population is telepathic/psychic. Referred to in the modern day, as 'Awakening/Opening the Third Eye', telepaths/psychics aren't permitted to disclose much information to those who are not awake/aware i.e. telepathic/psychic. There are rules. There is a policing force also made of secret societies.

    The Pyramids = Ancient Pyramids of Egypt. Regarded as mysterious, with questions remaining to present day as to the purpose of their construction, answers are kept hidden within secret societies and the minds of telepaths. Revealed to only those who awaken their third eye and become telepathic, is the marvel of electricity existing in ancient times. Concepts of Free Energy are originally derived from the ancient pyramids, known for producing free electricity in mass volumes, instantaneously. This secret along with the actual methods that were used and needed to produce free energy are kept secret by half the world and regulated by secret societies. The pyramids were turned OFF a long time ago, they can be turned ON today if the secret and hidden powers to be wanted the world to have free energy.

    How? Electrical components, Inductors and Transformers (coils), do not transfer electricity but actually create free electricity. Solar energy fed back into an inductor or transformer, can create unlimited electricity instantaneously. Norms (non-telepaths), are often discouraged and confused when attempting to study electrical engineering or physics due to the false assertion of Electrons. There are no such thing as electrons, they are taught only to confuse norms so they don't figure out the solution to the worlds energy problems.

    There is a reason why the cartoon 'Transformers' was created, along with the lyric in it's theme song, "Transformers – More Than Meets The Eye."

    Trump is CURED!! For more Secrets Revealed publicly, Vote Trump!!

    Bill Gates met with all Ontario & mayors across Canada through Harvard University in April to dictate how to remove citizen's freedoms. In 2009 Gates also did experiments on 23,000 young Indian girls on an experimental HPV vaccine that left 1,200 girls with severe auto-immune diseases and fertility disorders.

    Destroy the treaties with Canada, they had their hundreds of years of chances. I'd rather roll the dice and draw up another negotiation and bring Russia to Canadian soil. It's nothing but complicit useless RCMP here…. more like Gestapo.

    The RCMP let 23 people get gunned down 6 months ago without so much as a call in to the radio or tv station to warn the public they are not racist just evil and incompetent.

    This community will never advance in society with the mindset they have. It is very backwards. They want everything handed to them instead of not earning it. And in the process they use acient old history against Canadians of 2020.

    Natives want the RCMP to step in and stop protesters when it effects them but they didn’t care when natives set up blockades in highways and the railway, blocking food and supplies to Atlantic Canada.

    The RCMP is right to let the protesters do their thing. And the natives are just a bunch of cry babies and hypocrites.

    Let the protesters voice their opinion.
