On Sunday, a series of vandalistic attacks on vehicles and homes occurred in Flin Flon, a city located 600 kilometers northwest of Winnipeg.
According to official data, two women were arrested because of unethical statements about the Indians after these crimes. They are a 32-year-old from Flin Flon and a 25-year-old from the nearby village. Paul Manaigre, a spokesperson Sgt., reported that two women will be brought to justice for their 'shoot an Indian' posts.
Manaigre also stated that all started on Facebook and led to uttering threats and public incitement of hatred. RCMP received numerous calls with complaints from local residents and immediately began to take action.
The police keep the names of suspects in secret until their charges are officially pronounced in court. However, the circumstances appear to match remarks made by local women Destine Spiller and Raycine Chaisson.
Both women made unethical statements about the indigenous population of Canada on their Facebook pages after they found their cars being spray-painted. Spiller publicly apologized, but she was dismissed from her work.
Manitoba's Grand Chief Arlen Dumas supported the arrests and said that people should be responsible for the statements about the indigenous population of Canada they make personally and on the Internet.
According to Dumas’s words, this is the propaganda of violence among people and the government needs to stop such actions. In his opinion, the situation worsened after in 2016 Gerald Stanley was acquitted after the murder of First Nations man.
