Identities of two Mi'kmaq Warriors on RCMP 'threat' list revealed


APTN National News has identified two of the individuals on a list of 89 Indigenous rights activists considered “threats” by the RCMP following a review of details contained in a recently released report compiled by the federal police force’s intelligence centre.

The RCMP’s National Intelligence Coordination Centre compiled the list of Indigenous rights activists who posed potential “threats” during Indigenous rights demonstrations as part of an operation dubbed Project SITKA which aimed to enhance the federal police force’s intelligence gathering capacity, according to a report obtained under the Access to Information Act by two Ottawa-based researchers.

While the names of the individuals on the list of 89 are redacted in the publicly released version of the Project SITKA report, several key details about possible identities managed to survive the censors.
