RCMP arrest four Indigenous protesters for fish farm demonstration

 


Four members of the Yaakswiis Warriors — whose members are part of the Ahousaht First Nation — were arrested this week after protesting a fish farm operation north of Tofino.

"We were protecting our water and our land," said Lennie John, who drove up to the Dixon Bay fish farm — operated by the Cermaq Group — in a "tin can boat."

"I put my boat where they were going to put the barge down, and they wouldn't halt. I asked them to stop, and they told me to stay off their channel, that it was their channel."
