The Manitoba RCMP say they’ll continue to work with all parties involved in the blockade at the Manitoba Hydro Keeyask site.
In a news release, the RCMP say they served an injunction order against Tataskweyak Cree Nation community members yesterday, which was requested by Manitoba Hydro and granted by the provincial Court of Queen’s Bench on Monday.
The news release adds that the RCMP have worked with Chief and Council to ensure the injunction order is served in a respectful manner that is culturally sensitive.
This comes after rumours were circulating online that the RCMP would be arresting Tataskweyak Cree Nation’s Chief and Council last night at the blockade that was on Provincial Road 2-80.
The Manitoba RCMP explains they are working closely with Tataskweyak leadership, MKO, the Assembly of Manitoba Chiefs, and Manitoba Hydro.
The news release adds that RCMP are engaging avenues of mediation, consultation, and dialogue in an attempt to find a resolution to the ongoing protest.
