Sûreté du Québec takeover of policing in Obedjiwan costs $100K weekly


The Sûreté du Québec has taken over duties from the local police force on the territory of the Atikamekw First Nation of Obedjiwan in the Mauricie region – at a cost of more than $100,000 per week.

The Obedjiwan council disbanded its police force, which employed 22 officers to patrol the reserve 200 kilometres west of Roberval, Que., on April 1, because of a dispute with the province over policing costs.
