Re: Request to meet to discuss RCMP concerns for Northern Manitoba First Nations
Dear Commissioner Lucki,
I am writing to you in my capacity as the Grand Chief of Manitoba Keewatinowi Okimakanak (MKO) to request a meeting with you to discuss our concerns regarding the RCMP and the treatment of First Nations people across Canada.
As you are aware, there is growing concern about the mistreatment of First Nations people by RCMP officers. Immediate action needs to take place to minimize the negative impact that First Nations people are experiencing based on interactions with the RCMP.
I am requesting to meet so we can discuss issues of concern to our MKO First Nations regarding the RCMP. To arrange the meeting, please contact my assistant Clyde Flett by phone at (204) 390-2702 or by email at [email protected].
