Condemning the inaction of Sarat to Quebec, Kanesadake’s community is in shock after being invaded by disrespectful spectators on Saturday.

“Outsiders insulted and threatened us. I was scared,” said Al Harrington, a resident of Canesdek in Ojibwa descent.
Ignoring health measures, the questioners came to drink, smoke and dance outside the sound of Caribbean music at the invitation of the green room of the local cannabis pharmacy.
“There are some cannabis dealers who want to attract as many customers as possible and exaggerate,” said Serge Simon, the great leader of Canadian Tech.
Such meetings are “absolutely not allowed” in the community, recalls Robert Bonespeel, spokesman for the Canadian Emergency Response Unit.
Above all, at least 300 people attended the party, occupying the shoulder of Route 344 crossing the community, or even parking lots of individuals without permission.
For great disadvantages
At 9:30 p.m., Mohawk residents, angered by the attitude of the intruders, set up a roadblock at the entrance to the community, hoping to reduce the party.
“I started helping them because we have to take care of the safety of our community. I will not be intimidated in our territory,” Harrington said.
Soretta du Quebec (SQ) received a report on the complex meeting on Saturday, but was unable to provide an estimate of its intervention on Sunday evening.
For Grand Chief Simon, this whole chapter demonstrates the need to patrol the territory of a Mohawk police force, just as it was before SQ took charge in 2004.
Prime Minister Franசois Legalt was also open to the idea during a press conference on Sunday.
“There are discussions to know if there should be Native police officers, so a new police force. Grant Chief did not say no to Simon’s request.”
Meanwhile, the Canadian Emergency Response Unit is considering restricting access to the community to prevent further overflow.
Kanasadake describes 37 cases of COVID-19 and only two deaths since the onset of the epidemic.
