Our MP says the two suspects from BC that are on the run have caused fear, immense stress, and worry for many people across northern Manitoba.
Niki Ashton explains that stress is particularly impacting for people living in communities like Split Lake, Gillam, and York Landing.
Ashton says that while our north has been painted as being in the middle of nowhere, it’s made up of communities where people are connected to the land, working at the hydro dams, and travelling on the roads to access the most basic services.
She adds that this is a real ordeal for people who are now holed up in their homes to stay safe.
Ashton also thanks the RCMP, the military, the Bear Clan Patrol, and everyone who is working around the clock to keep out communities safe.
